And If you REALLY love horses you would realize that horse slaughter is completely inhumane and never will be humane. "Oh, horse slaughter is okay IF it's humane." Well there you go people, horse slaughter isn't humane, so it's not okay. Watch an untame version of horse slaughter and you'd open your eyes people. More than one video I watched the horse had to be popped at least five times or so to be 'stunned' One dude doing the bolting totally missed and hit the horse's side causing it even more pain! If you REALLY loved horses you would find a way to get your horse humanly euthanized.

You say to watch an uncut version of horse slaughter? My uncle used to work at one of the slaughter houses. I had a brief time period where I believed those videos and hated my uncle. And then he took me to work with him one day. Every horse he put down was a quick kill. Not a single one had to endure "undue pain." And, yes, I cried and couldn't watch and puked my guts out. But I didn't believe those videos anymore. Anyone can make a video and say it's the real thing.

As far as slaughtering people... I'm with ya. There are too many people. That's my reasoning behind being pro-abortion and pro-death penalty.
And on the subject of other animals. Should we stop killing cows, chickens, because someone, sonewhaere, might hurt the animal in the process? I mean, cows and chickens can be family pets too.

I have seen slaughter operations and they don't bother me at all. The goal is to kill the animal with the least amount of stress possible. It's as humane as any activity can be that results in the death of a horse. Mistakes are sometimes made but most of all everyone works to make sure things happen properly. I was also an anti-slaughter teenager but I grew out of it when I became part of the world and quit letting my biases close my eyes to what actually happens.

Katesrider011 if you think slaughter is inhumane, then watching a horse turned out to be "free" in the wild(like so many people are doing these days cause they have no place to bury a horse) and seeing predators attack and kill it... Not fast and certainly not painfree.
You do realize that PETA and the associated groups with them are the ones making the videos like this? They set things up to look bad because their adjenda is to no longer let ANYONE have pets of any kind from fish to horses or anything in between
Since you are so against humane slaughter, then maybe you can open up a farm with thousands of acres and take in everyones horses that they can no longer keep due to illness or injury and can't afford to feed a pasture pet. I would rather see someone send a horse to slaughter and know it is dead fast than drop it off in the national forests all over the country to die a slow death from starvation, predators, etc.

I love horses always have. I've seen horses so starved they had to be put down, those who were still among the living....it's not a pretty sight.
stop to consider, if someone can not afford to feed and take care of their horse do you honestly think they have the $$$ to pay for the hole to be dug (that is providing they have enough room on their property...there's laws on that) then pay for the vet call to come out and that in itself does not always go smoothly, that's not a pretty sight either.

But it's whatever, it's not like I'll ever be able to stop it worldwide. But it's not coming back to the usa if I can help it. Oh yeah and I'm sure peta sets that up, they train the horse to fall over and bleed after it's been popped several times, Riiiigghhhtt.

Oh yeah maybe someone's uncle did work at one of the tamer slaughter houses, doesn't mean every other slaughterhouse is the same way.

It's cute how you think insulting people will get you somewhere. Maybe someday when you grow up you'll realize people are allowed to have different opinions, and no army of brats screaming names is going to prevent people from feeling the way they do.

My favorite part of the anti-slaughter group is that they have all of the answers, but nobody knows what the question is.

And as for cost, you're dreaming - there will ALWAYS be abusive psychopaths in this world. Have none of you heard of the 100 Arabian rescue? 100 high blooded, expensive and wellbred animals left to starve and rot to death. An expensive horse can be neglected and abused just as easily as a cheap one - people who are sick enough to do these types of things do NOT have any regard for money, and often times are so stricken with mental illness they can't even understand what they're doing wrong.

Death and abuse will always be a part of this world - it's foolish and denial if you actually believe otherwise.

katesrider011 - I sincerely hope you're a vegan - otherwise I have a whole slew of nasty names to call YOU for for all the injustices and suffering you're inflicting on the cows, chickens and pigs of this world.
