PETA had nothing to do with closing the U.S. Plants horse owners did.

And I never once said that no horses were killed with a knife go back and read what I actually said not what you want to see. So if its terrable some animals are killed by the knife it Mex. How about the ones killed by knife in the U.S.?

There arent any horse slaughter plants in AMERICA!!! And those horses arent are killed by the dagger, they are stuned by it, and still alive while they get hung up by there leg. 1,000+ pounds hanging by one leg. So you think that's fair county? You think all animals should suffer? Those mexican slaughter people are nutz, how they can look an animal in the eye then stab in the neck three or four times till its down the cheer afterwards.... you think that's not crazy at all?? You think that's fair to the animal?

quarter horses.....simply the best

Videos from a Mexican slaughter house? I'm in the United States. I have no control over Mexico.

I am a very real genuine animal lover. But I understand the line between humans and livestock. I would never wish ill on any human. That judgement is far beyond my station in life.

What is your solution reining_girl?
Because while I hate to see horses slaughtered (And yes, I know cows and sheep and pigs get slaughtered too...but I will be honest, horses upset me more because of my closeness with horses over other slaughter-bound animals), I see it as a necissary evil.
Even if we close off slaughter in canada, mexico, and the US, it's still going to happen because of the high demand for hose meat in European and some Asian cultures. If we can keep it in the USA, we can better regulate it as well as export and make a profit off of it (since after all, this is all a business).

There aren't enough horse owners who want to or can adopt. People who already own horses are having a difficult time.

So far, I can't see a solution.

I know, im saying that they should shut down mexico and just open the U.S. Ones back up, because we can keep a closer eye and get a more humane way of doing it. I agree, I hate that horses are slaughtered, but it needs to be done. But the way the mexico ones are doing it is not fair.

Do you think captive bolt is okay?

If we open the ones in the US back up (Which I would personally prefer), there still are going to be plants in Mexico and Canada...though, I suppose they wouldn't be filled with American horses...

I don't like it. I know there is not much a person can do to stop the mexico ones, it just makes me sick knowing what is happening to such a beautiful animal.
