Predatory Business is a Cancer to Society
We would like to send out a sincere thank you to Representative Patrick Meehan (R., Pa.) for urging congress to action to pass the ban on horse slaughter. Click (HERE)
Can we trust anyone? A lovely looking horse trainer lady pretended to give horses a good home, and sold them to kill instead. Her constant deceiving and lying is not the exception amongst kill buyers, it is the rule.
Many a previous owner would be distraught and traumatized if they knew of the torturous ways in which their former companion has come to its bitter end. The predatory horse slaughter industry doesn’t only victimize horses, it victimizes people.
7 years ago, a woman who was a successful Hotel Executive and a natural horsemanship trainer, came across a lost and lonely horse on the state land. She left her car by the side of the road, called in a day off at work and spent a few hours gentling the horse. The beautiful white mare responded quickly. After a while, she got on the friendly horse, opened the gate, and they rode home together on the side of the road, without a bridle, halter or saddle.
The woman then placed an ad in the paper with the description of the white mare, there were no markings or brands. She started training the mare and it being the sweetest horse she ever knew, after a while, she decided to keep her. One day the livestock Inspector saw the ad in the paper and came to her house. Turns out she was not allowed to keep the horse, as the procedure is that every abandoned horse has to go through the local auction. She had a dooming feeling as they loaded the now very well-trained mare into the trailer.
The livestock inspector did not notify her of the correct date when the auction was to take place. She sat there waiting for the sweet mare to come through, but she never did. She then went to every auction she knew of to find the horse, but never found her. By going to all the auctions, she found out about the local kill buyers and started tracking their every move. From that day forward, her life has changed forever. (yes, this is my story, and that beautiful soul of a horse is the reason I am in this fight until the end.)
Many people are a victim of the horse slaughter Industry, and every responsible American horse owner should be petrified about what might happen next.
If we open a horse slaughter plant in America, will it make kill buyers into humane and honest people? Will the whipping and beating and electric shocking of horses stop, will the transport be any more humane, will the nature of the business change and slaughter workers become considerate? Will it stop abuse and neglect? Will it stop the export of our horses to Mexico and Canada? The answers are no, no , no, no and no. It will just be more of the same. More of our American Horses. More horrific cruelty for no good reason at all. For the sake of the breed associations and breeders who want their lucrative convenience.
If they truly cared about the welfare of horses like they say they do, one would think that they would turn some of their millions of dollars in breed incentives and use at least some of it for euthanasia funds, perhaps some funds for horse rescues, who knows maybe gelding funds? It would be so easy for them to do this.
They could also start their own retirement sanctuaries. They could also discourage breeding and bring the numbers of new foals down. Instead, they use all their money to buy off legislators and lobby for new horse slaughter plants in America and put on Summits to try to convince the world that it is “humane”, while in the mean time they keep doling out the breed incentives, and they keep saying that they care about the welfare of horses.
Its plain as day, their fake arguments are easier to see through than our dirty truck windows. Every argument for preserving the barbaric practice of horse slaughter, is greed motivated, un-factual and extremely deceptive. It is time to take steps forward towards a more humane and civilized world, not the other way around.
Therefore we would like to sincerely thank Congressman Meehan for his call to action to end this crooked, fraudulent despicable practice once and for all.

Please see this article from Forbes and video of the most “humane” horse slaughter plant designed by Dr. Temple Grandin. The horses have to be hit over and over, up to 11 times before they go down.
