Horse Slaughtering
United States of America

Foreign owned slaughterhouses in the United States and Canada kill approximately 100,000 American bred horses annually.

The horse meat is NOT being used in dog food or to feed starving masses. Rather, it is an up to $20/lb delicacy enjoyed by humans in Japan and Europe. The way horses are slaughtered is cruel and inhumane.

Horses must ride in a cramped trailer, sometimes an illegal double-decker, for days at a time without food or water. Then they are cattle prodded out to be shot in the head with a nail gun, sending fragments of skull into its brain. The horse is often still alive as it is hung by its hooves and throat slit, as it breathes its last breath.

Horses had helped us in the civil war by taking us cross contry. Is this the right way to thank them? I don't think so, so please, sign the petition.

We are asking you to sign this petition to stop the horse slaughtering in Europe and Japan.
