Horse Abuse!

Hey,

Well I really should get off you tube. Because videos just keep popping up....I was looking at barrel racing and came up with this:


This makes me sick, why would people want to do this to horses?

THIS MAKES ME EXTREMLY SICK! The title is how to kill a wounded horse, this is absolutly wrong!



That is only one part of the video the rest of it can be veiwed there are parts 1-5 I can not veiw them as I am not over 18 years old.

Okay that first video, shows pictures of Jumping falls and Rodeoing. I used to ride saddle bronc and yeah sometimes the horses trip but they are rarely rarley abused, also I don't think a Jumping trip or fall counts as abuse. It also looks like there is a pic of someone putting their horse down with the vet. Still images can be taken way out on context. I am warey to trust most videos like this.

The other two videos yes are just horrid.

Yes, those are graphic and sad. But I still don't get why horse slaughter is so much worse then cow, pig, or chicken slaughter? Yes, we love them, but they are prey animals. I am against eating predators that are not naturally food, but although I would not eat a horse, I see nothing wrong with it.

As in other slaughter industries, there should be improvements in the care of the animls prior to death, but otherwise I'm fine with it.

yeah horse slaughter isnt very different from cow pig or chicken. I do believe that we need to be humane in slaughter but I don't find anything wrong with it. If we don't slaughter them then where do they go? They are like dogs, far too many and not enough homes so some get put down. I do not not eat horse meat but I do eat other meat. I also understand that its very sad to see horses treated that way but your hamburger got to plate in the same way.

this is horrible, but my mom went to switzerland and had horse. She didnt know it was horse until after she ate it. It made me sick when she told me... XP I agree with RoosterDo. If there isnt slaughter in the US, the horses get shipped to other countries where they are treated worse. Also, if they have no where to go and no one wants them, they end up getting abused because there arent any slaughter houses.

I don't like the idea of someone killing horses, but I hate even more the thought of them suffering.

IdahoCowgirl the video discription for the first video says:

READ FIRST*
I KNOW that some of these pictures are not forms of abuse. BUT I would like to point out that pretty much ALL of the pictures were taken off abuse websites except the ones where it's onlt a fall they were just saved to my computer from previous (now deleted) videos. It is very hard to find alot of pictures for a video like this. And if your going to say anything about sueing me be quiet and save your time. Your comments will be removed.

actually broc riding CAN be abuse SOMETIMES: I have heard of people jabbing spurs, and tazing the horse to make it buck.

Personaly I think horse SLAUGHTER is wrong. A better way to 'kill' a horse is to PUT it down not cut its head off. But I still(no matter what) think horse slaughter/putdown(putdown I don't care about if the horse is suffering, but for no reason no) is wrong.
