I fail to understand why this was necessary to post.

if you wish to not not watch. keep it simple.

some people would like to know. I for one, like to be informed.

Article and video don't match. Different years, different companies. Have anything more recent?

who in this thread said horse slaughter is evil. I personally think we should go to the SOURCE of the problem with irresponsible breeders and owners.

keeping their colt a stallion because " he is sooooo cute! and sweet!" nevermind he is downhill and has the worst conformation for breeding , then letting them jump the fence, because they are too lazt to properly contain and separate them.:roll:

keeping a horse and starving it to death slowly in a backyard is just as cruel!

To lighten the mood...

When asked about horse slaughter, a non-horsey friend of mine replied: "Have you SMELLED horses? If they smell that bad, imagine what they'd taste like? NO WAY."

She was not amused when I offered to let her lick Vanna to make absolutely certain that she did not enjoy the taste.

Have you ever had a dog killed at the vet's? I have - a number of times. What I saw on that video isn't any worse overall than what some of my dogs have done as I held them in my arms. Sometimes they go down easy. Sometimes they fight it. One of my dogs thrashed around for a minute, with me bawling like a baby.

I hate to break it to some folks, but death isn't pretty. If you don't die in your sleep, you will probably experience pain and fear. Most wild animals do. Lots of people do too. Only a society divorced from nature would freak over that video. IMHO.

What does breeding irresponsibly have to do with that video? It's a tenuous connection at best. If you wanted to talk about irresponsible breeding, why post that video at all? It's not important to the conversation.

Besides, we've been down this sad, tired road a million times already. You can't MAKE people be responsible, and the majority of horses going to slaughter do not come from backyard fugly breeders.

Another thing, why is it that only HORSES go to slaughter? Why are chickens, cattle, swine, and other livestock processed, but only the pwetty, pwetty horsies are slaughtered?

I also agree with bsms. Death when it comes isn't pretty, regardless of the way it happens. I watched the video. I didn't cringe in horror, wring my hands, or cry, so whatever point you're trying to make was lost on me. I've already seen death up close and personal more than once, and a lot more bloody than anything in that video.
