Stop Horse Slaughter!


While these pictures are of very graphic nature, I actually picked the less disturbing photos, believe it or not. There are photos of large piles of JUST horse heads and legs. There is NOTHING right about horse slaughter, so do what you can to END it. Horse slaughter in the US is illegal, but there are still secret places. If you ever see what looks to be a horse trailer on the way to get slaughtered (barred, many horses packed inside), get the license plate down. You may be wrong, but you may be right.

I kindof agree with you, I didn't watch the video. But I think if you do it humanely horse slaughter is okay, lots of places do do it humanely. =/ it's really quite necessary.

I don't really know what to say about slaughter. I've heard that many places are humane and I've heard many aren't, so...

Where is it done humanely? If the horse is happy and not being abused up until their death, then go ahead.. But I've only seen videos of inhumane places, where the horse is desperately trying to escape but ends up getting hung up on a rope by a leg, blood dripping down to the floor.

I've seen vids like that too, I believe that's in Mexico because the people looked Mexican in the videos I saw. In canada it's fairly decent, and they get it done quick and it's regulated. In the Usa when it used to be here it was regulated and decent. Cause you know if it came to the usa, the animal cruelty groups are going to be all over their ass trying to stop it or atleast force em to be as humane as possible.

so you just want every single horse to be adopted, the horse shelters don't have enough room. So they need to slaughter some.

I never get why there are always pictues of starving horses in slaughter videos. I don't think slaughter has much to with that.

But any way, I'm pro slaughter all they way and I like the way it's done in my country. We have good rules.

palominolover: Exactly.

And also, people can save horses from slaughter, but be aware as well alot of horses going to slaughter are unhealthy anyway. But sadly there are good horses that go there as well. And that's where I disagree with it is when a good racehorse or any horse like that gets sent there to make quick cash. And also you can get you're horse microchipped in case it gets stolen it can be returned. It's pricy I'm sure but once I get own my own my horses are getting chipped, I'd rather pay for the chip than my horse getting slaughtered if it were ever stolen cause I didn't bother to do it.

palominolover- "so you just want every single horse to be adopted, the horse shelters don't have enough room. So they need to slaughter some.": Which brings me to another problem: overbreeding for horseracing, PMU, etc etc etc. Not to mention, if you ARE going to result to killing the animal, could you not do it in a way where the animal's life doesn't end in fear? I have had to euthanize many horses and they were always VERY happy and calm up until their last breath, not screaming and trying everything in their power to escape.

Sissimut-icehestar: I don't know anything about slaughter for where you live, this video is based off of illegal US slaughterhouses.

Also I'd just like to add that when it comes to horses being neglected in someone's backyard, starving to death, slaughterhouses can be preferred. I'm just not for either one (and by slaughterhouses I'm referring to the inhumane ones, as I know nothing about the humane ones)
