Transportation of livestock is not right. That's why I am not against slaughter, I am against the transpotation with no feed water and vet treatment. Its much easier to slaughter close to the horses home and package and send the meat than it is to make them suffer. Whether it be cows, pigs, sheep, goats, horses, they should all be given the right to a quick regulated slaughter and then the suffering is short and done because it is an neccesary evil. With out it we would be over run and also guidelines are given and regulations are there to make the job quick in countries such as here in england, was in the USA, canada, etc, its the other ones that get kicks out of doing it and watching them suffer. Even though we still slaughter, we also still export livestock which really doesnt make sence!
A horse belongs in a stable not on a table!
