Alwaysbehind, I posted my opinion about the issue, that's all. When you say that it is "GREEN" and that the plants in the US were "HUMANE" I feel you are very misguided. However, if you know the facts, and you still refuse to use your logic then you are responsible for misguiding others, and I do find that heartless.

If you follow the links on my post instead of getting bent out of shape and just blindly disagreeing because I think you don't know all of the facts, you would know that the slaughter houses in the USA were horribly out of compliance with waste removal rules, completely inhumane and are like a cancer to our society.

Eco-friendly is very very 'in' right now, that's why I posted links to studies of the pollution the plants create.

Cancer is never 'in' so the "perfectly good meat" that you mention is riddled with carcinogens that cause sever, likely fatal, illnesses in those that ingest it. THERE IS NO WITHDRAWAL PERIOD FOR BUTE. When zoos quit feeding the meat to their animals, I find it's time to quit serving it to our fellow human beings overseas.

I think that the EU will be enforcing their new regulations on contaminated american horse meat July 31.

I also don't find that $35 or saving $1000 is worth watching poor ole fluffy march through a slaughter house terrified and fighting for her life only to be brutally 'processed.' I also don't think it's cool to put an animal through that because you want a younger, better version to show. HORSES DO NOT LIVE FOREVER! YOU KNOW WHEN YOU PURCHASE ONE THAT EVENTUALLY YOU WILL HAVE TO EUTH. AND DISPOSE OF THE ANIMAL. YOU SHOULD PAY THOSE FEES JUST LIKE YOU WOULD PAY VET/FARRIER/DENTAL FEES. Man up and let your horse go with peace and dignity.

I know that not everyone cares about animals wellbeing, that's why I posted links to studies and papers and articles that PROVE that horse slaughter is not only bad for the horses involved, but is also bad for our ECONOMY in the good ole US of A, HEALTH of those who eat it, ENVIRONMENT and is also relates to the HIGHER CRIME RATES.

Who benefits from this? The only people who do are the owners of these plant, and I promise you they are sitting back somewhere giggling like little girls, counting their money and wondering how so many people are standing up and fighting for their profit.

I am not going to put any input on this because these things can get pretty heated about this topic and plus im quite biased bout this topic because my AMAZING horse was saved from slaughter...

I'm against slaughter. It just made more sense to me than being pro-slaughter. I'm not about to get into a fruitless slaughter debate with a pros either, I've done it a few times and I learned nothing new nor were my views shifted (as well as vice versa).

Laugh.... Everyone who does not agree with you is evil and wrong. What a mature attitude.

And yes, it is called not wasting. Ever tried it? Obviously not.

I am against it, can't stand the thought of these wonderful animals being tortured(which is what it seems like is being done to me) A lot of my horses are older and I got them when they were old just to give them a great home until they pass on. I LOVE older horses. I hate the thought of dogs/cats in shelters being put down but at least it is done for the most part humanely. I guess I don't understand why horses don't deserve the same as a shelter dog would get if it needed to be done.

I personally think the fact that we dispose of all the euthanized shelter animals is a horrible waste of perfectly good meat.
There are cultures that eat dog and cat meat.

Do you think Moos and pigs deserve the same as a shelter dog? Or is killing other animals OK with you, just not horses?

Horses cost quite a bit more to euthanize and dispose of than a dog or a cat. Lets start there. Add that horses are livestock. Not pets.

I was not rude to you. Your response to me seems really rude as I was only saying what I believed in. I was not rude to you but then I suppose next you are going to say that we shouldn't waste the meat when people die after all some cultures eat it. It doesn't make it right sometimes you have to have morals, and btw I don't like the conditions period that all animals go through in slaughterhouses but since we are talking about horses I didn't really go into it. I'm sorry but there must be another way besides torture. Pigs and cows are raised for meat btw not horses in this country, not that they should be tortured either.

Was not being rude. Sorry if you took it that way.

I was just giving my opinion.

I do not see slaughter as torture. Though I am all for making it as humane as possible. Stressed meat is not good meat.

We do harvest human parts. Not for food, but for transplant. Kind of the same thing.

I am not saying we should end the lives of cats, dogs, puppies and kittens in a cruel way. I am saying their lives are being ended anyway. Why not let their deaths not be a waste.

Lol ok I guess we will agree to disagree. If it needs to be done that I just would like it as humane as possible and it seems on the point we both agree
