Slaughter plant closed

I know some of you saw the story on CBC that came out last spring about horse slaughter in Canada. If not here's a link: | The National | Archive | No Country for Horses | No Country for Horses

Just thought you might like to know that the plant featured in that story has been shut down... For food safety violations. Just goes to show that people who don't care about animals often don't care that much about human welfare either.

I understand that the horse meat industry is a business. But it CAN be done in a kinder way. The rules need to be inforced. It killed me to watch those horses slip and slide around in fear. There has GOT to be a better way.

I hate the thing that people kill horses and all the animals in those conditions - so every information about closing a slaughter plant appears as a great one, but lately I heard and read on a polish magazine that somewhere in America they closed slaughter houses and it made the horses' situation even worse - because they still were going to be killed, but they just had to be tranported to some places many hours away in really poor conditions.. Is it true?
In Europe it's still kinda common thing - and hundreds of thousands horses suffer awful journey to death..

For sure slaughter, for all animals, needs to be regulated. Not just horses, but cattle, pigs, chickens, ect. I think if I'm going to eat an animal, it makes it easier knowing they didn't suffer. Thats my opinion, and I am not a vegan or whatever, but I have a much easier time eating an elk that was shot clean in the head, over a cow that was held in a feedlot and shipped and dehydrated and tortured. I still enjoy McDonalds though.

I've worked in slaughter plants since 72 and I've never seen a case yet of torture regardless of species. And your not going to shut down mex. slaughter plants Beltex spent millions building a new one and its regulated very strictly by EU standards.
