    I am not pro-slaughter. I realize it it the best option for some horses and we need it. It's better than what some horses would face otherwise.
    I'm never going to be happy about it, though.

    Exactly right, Herd. The biggest hurdle all of us need to overcome is vilifying those who don't agree with our particular stance, whether it's for, against, or on the fence.

    I don't know anyone, pro, anti, or undecided who thinks that prolonged suffering is acceptable, and yet I see these accusations thrown out time and again by those who believe that whoever doesn't buy into their particular opinion must be that way.

    What I dislike more than anything else is someone else's belief that they have the right to dictate to others how they're supposed to act and feel, and because they don't LIKE something it gives them the right to infringe upon the rights of others. That's wrong on so many levels.

    Well, philosophically...which is always fun :)....if horse meat is okay for human consumption and/or human's pets - why not human meat? Cattle, chicken and pigs have always been used for food in western culture. This is not the case w horses or humans.

    Horse meat was eaten in the US up until the 1960s, and was in commercially available pet foods until the late 1970s. If you're trying to use history as proof for the anti agenda, you need to do proper research.

    As far as using a specious argument trying to compare eating horse meat akin to cannibalism, I'm embarrassed for you at your ignorance and naivety.

    What do you define as 'Western culture'? The UK? They eat horse. Canadians? Horse meat is readily available for those who want it. Hispanics? French? Dutch? Swedish? They all have no aversion to cheval.

    This is an extremely interesting thread, especially now because I was assigned a rhetorical analysis paper on animal slaughter. Very civil for the most part.

    No, I was thinking more along the lines of that which shaped all the history, norms, laws, and culture of Europe and its expansion.... greece/rome/christianity. But it is defined in many different way...I was just defining it the way most ignorant naive hill billies w classical educations define it.

    It was a phylosophical question. That is all. It tests the logic of "excess meat"...not meant to offend.
