    Hmm, someone mentioned seals? That is disgusting what they do in Canada.

    I will assume that anyone who opposes horse slaughter also opposes hunting, maybe fishing and all other forms of animal slaughter for food. Otherwise you're applying a double standard to horse slaughter which is something a reasonable argument can not have.

    But death is a part of life.

    Animals considered pets or companion animals, that we have an emotional attachment too are hard to see mistreated in any way. Other countrys don't see the same animals the way we do. I saw a show on cats where they are concidered meat, sorry don't recall the country. They were taking live cats and boiling them to start the cooking process. Really disturbing. Its a tough world for all animals. It bothers me when driving down the road and seeing dead animals cats, dogs whatever just laying there, no one caring that their poor bodys are torn and uncared for. I am not a vegetarian or an animal activist just kindhearted. I would like to see animals treated fairly the world over, but its not going to happen in my lifetime. I don't think there is a black and white answer to how we can stop animal cruilty until all the world sees animals the same. The way I see it humans will have to be destroyed first. We are doing a fine job of that so maybe animals will do a better job in the next incarnation of earth.
    Sorry for the rant, jmo.

    Why do you think there are animal activists? They are getting all this stuff slowly stopped, by making it illegal.

    I have to agree with Vidaloco also.

    Alli0707, I know animal activists are slowly having an impact, but sadly at the end of the day, they wont be able to change the world. As Vida says "The way I see it humans will have to be destroyed first. We are doing a fine job of that so maybe animals will do a better job in the next incarnation of earth."

    This sadly is the truth.

    Bubba's back. 8)

    The cost of euthansia has nothing to do with it. You can humanely euthanize a horse for the cost of a bullet. What's that, like 5 cents? It's carcass disposal that's expensive and also incredibly difficult to do. As I believe I said before, it's illegal to bury the body, impractical or illegal to compost it, usually not safe to feed to dogs or zoo animals, incredibly expensive to cremate it, and not all places have rendering plants or garbage dumps that will take animals bodies--if they do, this service is also very expensive. So for the owner who doesn't give a rip about his horse, he can't take it to slaughter, and he can't/won't afford carcass disposal, but if he feeds it just enough to keep it alive he can avoid all these pesky problems.

    You're a vegan? Good.

    Do you eat Jello, pudding, Junior Mints, or similar candy? Do you eat any hearty soups, like potato or cream of mushroom? Do you wear or own any leather products (shoes, belts, car seats, etc.)? Do you have any pets? Do you feed them commercial pet foods?

    Just checking.

    All the food I eat is from a vegan store that has nothing to do with animals. No I hate leather. And yes I have 2 horses. Nothing in the food comes from another animal.
