This will be my last post on this subject as, dont excuse the pun, im tired of beating a dead horse, slaughtered or otherwise.
Captive bolt is horrible, its scary to the horses and not 100% effective on the first time. If they want the meat, it will be 100% effective eventually. Sorry that this bothers you...
I dont eat horse meat so I dont have to worry about the meds that they get. Part B of that is if there were really a big problem with horses being medicated and then eaten...dont you think something would have showed up by now? An epidemic overseas of sick people who ate horsemeat? I haven't heard a peep.
Look at the rescues eh? This is going to sound cruel and im sure i will get punished for it but really girl...do you think that we, as a rescue, are going to take home the sick and injured when there are others there who have a chance? That is why the pregnant mares, OTTBs AQHA's and all the other horses that 'arent too bad' come home with us. We cannot save them all...we have to leave the bad ones and save the ones with a chance. We are not going to pull a horse with a busted leg and bad conformation out of the line and send a registered QH who just needs groceries. Does the busted leg horse deserve to live...he sure does! The QH deserves to live too. We lose tons of money on rescuing horses...we would lose tons of THOUSANDS of money if we took the sick and injured instead of just the starved and untrained.
As far as the humane, slaughter compasion BS comes into play, i am not turning a deaf ear or a blind eye to anything. I see the state of the horse now that slaughter has gone away and I wish they would change it back. Your ignorance is only making things worse. You want to rant and campaign for horses...find a way to make it better. Slaughter will go on...wheter it be at a factory with trained professionals who know the ins and outs of slaughter or in the back woods with a gun. Unneeded horses are clogging the way. Get a bandaid for your bleeding heart and open your eyes.
Consider me unsubscribed.
Well it is to bad you decided to consider yourself unsubscribed...You really did not read what I wrote, especially about the horses that go to slaughter...wow, cotton in those ears...and dear, Europe has been pulling horse meat off their shelves becuase of NOW finding out that there is MEDS in the HOrses MEAT and, dear they are upset about slaughter and how American Horses are being treated, dear.So I believe you should start reading and stop being such a un know it all....uinscribe all you want, but please make yourself knowlegeable, nicely...for the horses..dear
