Video: Actress Kaley Cuoco Speaks Out Against Horse Slaughter

Actress and animal lover Kaley Cuoco is speaking out against horse slaughter and is urging her fans to do the same.

“The Big Bang Theory” actress took to her Instagram and posted a photo of herself hugging a horse along with the caption: “Throughout history horses have loyally stood by us as our trusted companions. Please take action to end horse slaughter. #Yes2Safe.”

KaleyEach year, more than 100,000 American horses travel long distances across the U.S., in cramped trailers without food, water or rest, before they are horrifically slaughtered for human consumption.

A shocking new discovery about horse meat has prompted Cuoco to urge her fans to pressure lawmakers to vote yes on the The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act. Horse meat — mislabeled as meat from other species — has been discovered in the U.S. food supply, and is dumped on the dinner plates of unsuspecting consumers — many of whom oppose the slaughter and consumption of horses.

The SAFE act would ban domestic horse slaughter and stop the export of U.S. horses for slaughter abroad.

Cuoco has also teamed up with Humane Society International (HSI) for the cause. In a PSA that she shot for the organization, the actress says, “Horse slaughter is barbaric and an ultimate betrayal of our bond with these animals.”

To help with the fight against horse slaughter, HSI recommends looking up your legislators’ phone numbers. You can simply say, “Please cosponsor the Safeguard American Food Exports Act, H.R.1942/S.1214, which would keep horse slaughter plants shuttered in the U.S. and end the export of horses for human consumption.”

  1. I so wish people would read the SAFE ACT. It’s only 2 pages and applies to human consumption only. It does not close borders to slaughter. Horses will still pass for non human consumption. That’s a loophole big enough for tens of thousands of horses.
    I support this ACT however the issue of what to do with the horses that will be saved from slaughter is not addressed. IMO….that is why this ACT stalls in committee…there must be a forward based solution…Please reduce breeding the contributes to throw away horses. Responsible breeding and lifetime care.

  2. I received an email from Madeleine Pickens a couple days ago – sounds like the BLM is jerking her around again! I have issues resort for people who can afford the “luxury” accomodations in order to see “wild” horses – BUT it appears the BLM is doing their usual jerking around to see how far they can take it!!! Actually I’m surprised – thought with her access to publicity etc they would leave her alone.
