I do not see a pole. Was it deleted?

I think you are confused (or being snarky, not sure which). No one said the topic was not important. They are just telling you that this topic has been covered MANY times and you can probably get your answers easily by doing a search.

My stand on horse slaughter is that if something can not be done right or legally it shouldn't be done at all. When the horse slaughter plant closed in California there was not a increase of horses that were being abandoned in that state. It is just a cover story so that people don't lose their jobs and so that the industry doesn't die because of the demand in other countries. I have heard both sides of the horse slaughter debate and still I stand on the anti side. Most horses that go to slaughter are not even unwanted, sick, old or lame. What about the pregnant mares that are slaughtered?! Their babies didn't even get a chance at life. I'm not stupid. I do have common sense and that is why I am against it.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

I am pro slaughter since I really don't have a choice in the matter. Honestly, I think slaughter is the only thing horses have got going for them. It's their ticket out. It sounds terrible but with what some horses have to go through and deal with is also terrible and slaughter is MUCH better compared to that. Starving, hobbling around on long hooves, injuries and pain gone untreated...you get the point. Unfortunately, it is a necessary evil.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

Look at the horse industry, those babies are lucky they never had to deal with what horses today are dealing with.

it's funny how people say that slaughter is helping the matter of them being neglected, but numbers of that happening has not increased or decreased. That's pretty confusing to me.

I don't think it is helping the matter of them being neglected, but it is helping to end the suffering. I mean face it, there will always be neglect, no one can stop that unfortunately.

suffering? You have that backwards.

I am for horse slaughter depending on the circumstances. There are a lot of horses who could go to slaughter and end their misery. The abuse and neglect is horrible and many people can't pay for their horses and sometimes they are so far gone it's best to kill them.
Our Whimsy was taken to a Big Cat park and she was shot and butchered there so her remains could be used as food for the cats. She was put to a good cause.Yes,it is sad but her body helped many other bodies in the end.

oh and she was taken because she had arthritis to the extreme and she was crippling. She was in horrible pain and the vet said it would be best to put her down.

And although the numbers haven't increased or decreased with abuse or neglect slaughter helps those who can't make a good recovery if hurt bad. Why let them be in pain untill they die? Killing them..in more of a humane way ..either a bullet or putting them to sleep is what I consider humane..no way of letting them suffer.
