    Having been involved with meat processing for most of my adult life I can tell you that there is no such thing as a "tamer" slaughterhouse.

    That's sad to work at a place like that. Can you not get a better job?

    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.
    It's kind of funny how you said you thought insulting people will get You nowhere, yet you consider harsh words to say about me if I weren't a vegan.

    Okay, okay. Yall are probably right about the sick and neglected horses going there. But they do check the horses to make sure they aren't reportedly stolen right?

    Most auction houses I've worked with have a system in place to check that the horses sold through them are not stolen. The slaughterhouse my uncle worked at also had a similar system, to ensure that the horses were being brought in by the real owners.
    Unfortunately, unless the horse is microchipped or the theft is reported immediately to local authorities, there isn't a real easy way to say whether a horse has been stolen or not. 'Least not one that I've heard of.

    And just because some slaughter houses mistreat their animals, doesn't mean every other one does as well.

    It's not sad at all. Somebody has to do it. I don't work there anymore but it never bothered me and I fekt pretty good about doing my job so that people could eat the safest food in the world. I would rather take a junky, unwanted horse and turn it into meat that someone can buy to feed thier family than see it shot and dumped in a hole or neglected until it dies.

    Okay. Economic lesson for the horse meat should be spread across 3rd world/starving nations but not ever allow back into the USA.
    When the supply of the horse meat goes down, the price will go up. (Note horse MEAT, not horses, this is only after processed) The higher the price, the more of a 'delicacy' it is. The less likely anyone will ever want to fork out the money to give it away to a starving nation. Yes, it takes money to feed those countries, you can't just go donate meat and expect it to get somewhere without a crap load of work and money behind it to get it there safely without spoiling. And even if does get there I wont get into what really happens in those countries when supplies are handed over to be distributed by the people there.

    And what else is that lower supply/higher price doing? Oh right, having criminals going and killing peoples horses in their own private fields. There was a case of that in Florida wasn't there?

    So by the USA banning slaughter and horse meat, it made the situation way worse.

    And also, I spend a lot of time in Fort MacLeod. I'm assuming that if you anti-slaughter people really know your stuff and believe the trash videos you'd have heard of this slaughter house. Last time I was there, there were happy and nickering horses looking for scratches and treats. Yeah, stressed.
    This place also does cattle. But they aren't "pretty" or "majestic" and no one writes novels about the love of a cow.

    I also spend a lot of time at the Canada/USA border. Nope, never once saw a double decker full of horse. It's also a lot harder to transport livestock across the border than its made out. And yes I am aware of how to smuggle. And I have also spent enough time on back roads around the border to know how many border patrol trucks and helicopters are really out there. So yeah, good luck with all those stolen horses, odds are they aren't going north.

    So that's my 2-cents,
    Sincerely, a person who is in uni full time, works, still takes care of and loves my horse and will still support the largest "kill-buyer" in these areas. Because he is in it for the horse as a species, not the individuals.

    Okay maybe Canada is humane, but I don't trust that Mexico's is humane.

    So why did your bleeding heart buddies work so hard to get the well-regulated plants in the U.S. Closed down?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. You cannot control another country, and all you accomplished by getting horse slaughter banned in the US is to ensure a really long, really crappy trailer ride to another country where they DON'T have rules and regulations on slaughter. If they're lucky, they get to come up to Canada. Horse slaughter didn't go anywhere - the activists just made it a LOT more grueling then it ever had to be for them.
