I am in 100% agreement with Kevin.
I absolutely loathe the fact that someone can sit there and critique a plan without first or even afterward offering up a solution themselves. Anyone can shoot down an idea, it takes real guts to try to fix it.
I think there should be a horse processing plant in every state.
I think all of these people who are opposed to horse slaughter need to rethink their position if they really do love the horses, it will alleviate so much stress on horses as a species and as an industry.
I think it will boost the economy, if we can sell meat to foreign markets, that means income for us, not to mention the jobs opened up at each plant and also jobs for transport trucks, feed manufacturers, construction and contracting companies, ect.... I know horse meat will never be popular on a Us dinner table but other countries welcome the rich sweet meat and will pay top dollar for it.
I think Americans opposed to horse slaughter are selfish, just because they do not believe in it and it offends their delicate sensibilities, the horses should not have to suffer the long rides to the Mexican he11 holes or up to good ole Canada, they do not deserve to suffer and starve to death because no one can care for them, they should be given a quick and painless death and a short ride to said death at a regulated and monitored processing plant.
I believe you should have to procure a license or permit to breed a horse. That unlicensed breeding should be illegal or at least fined until the population can be brought under control.
In this time of economic stagnation in the Us and horse industry itself, I think we need to get over our stigma with horse slaughter and do what is best for the animals as well as give up a little of our pride and put up with regulations on horse breeding.
