Vickery Eckhoff, Mayor Paul Bacon and Stephanie Graham join Pam on the Issue of Horse Slaughter in Oklahoma
Warning: Graphic Images
Mass slaughter of horses tilts the economic scales to the demand side as supply diminishes. This commoditizes one of the smartest and most useful animals on the planet. Last year, 160,000 of these young, healthy horses were shipped across the border to Mexico or Canada for slaughter-deaths. Ninety-two percent of the horse were reportedly in “good to excellent condition” (Chinese and Europeans don’t eat, nor do they want us to ship them, old, diseased horse meat. Horse slaughtering is a meat factory.)
We incent the very problem we’re trying to eradicate! Federal government subsidies encourage a market where the horse is most valuable during the first two years of its life earning tax advantages and write-offs. After that, the breeder has to breed more horses and get rid of any horse over the age of four who can’t race, show or breed and/or gets in the way of a cattle operation.
Pam McKissick and her three guests uncover the dirty truth about horse slaughter and give voice to “the other side” on behalf of 80 percent of the voting public.
