Peom I wrote i find it to be very good *it's about slaughter

I loved you and thought you loved me,
but my thoughts were untrue,
for you placed me into a cave where I could not see.
We shared, I cared, we jumped some logs,
and how did you repay me?
You fed me to your dogs.
I still don't understand your cruelty;
all I ever did was love you.
Was that not enough?
I loved you and thought you loved me,
But my thoughts were untrue.

Then why have a poll?

Oh, and, this alternative is MUCH better, you're right.

In the U.S. there are currently no horse slaughter plants in operation. But they do exist in Canada and Mexico, so horses are often crowded onto trucks for a long journey across the border. According to Sorvino, the trip is long and arduous. "They're not fed. They're not watered. They're not taken care of."

In videotape from the Humane Society of the United States, a horse is shown being prodded by a rifle before being killed by a shot in the head at a plant in Canada.

The Humane Society says conditions can be even crueler in Mexico. At one plant, a frightened horse is shoved into a small pen before being repeatedly stabbed in the neck. Callous workers can be heard cheering when the horse finally goes down.

"They're just dying in this barbaric, despicable and unconscionable way," says Sorvino's daughter, Amanda.

Ultimately, the meat is shipped overseas to butcher shops, many that even specialize in horse meat, and restaurants that have horse dishes on their menus.

While slaughter seems brutal, Jim Holt, the veterinarian at the New Holland horse auction, says if the horses weren't killed for food, thousands would simply be abandoned, and left to die a slow painful death. He tells INSIDE EDITION, "We feel that it's, at this point, a necessary evil." :roll:

Educate yourselves.

Now, American horses are being shipped across the borders on a long, hot, crowded, dangerous trailer, whereupon they're killed in a place with no animal cruelty regulations whatsoever.

horses that were at slaughter houses but were rescued.

You know, the AQHA opposed the ban of horse slaughter in the US.

One of their biggest reasons was that they knew a US ban would not end it. It would only displace the problem to other nations where sanitation and humane regulations were non-existent.

There were other reasons, good ones too.

Where most people go wrong though, is assuming that the AQHA supported horse slaughter. Not true. They simply opposed its abolishment in this nation.

They still agree with everyone else, there are better alternatives for an unwanted horse.
