Americans Against Horse Slaughter

31,686 Signatures Goal: 10,000

We, the undersigned, AMERICANS AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER, urge Congress to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act to end the horrific practice of transporting and slaughtering horses for human consumption abroad. No horse should face such a cruel and brutal end. In America, no horse is bred for food. He is bred for sport, industry and agriculture. Many are companions just like our dogs and cats. Our country was built on the back of horses who still serve our country to this day. Horses protect our borders as well as helping police protect our cities. They provide programs that help those with disabilities. When you ask people about the practice of horse slaughter, the vast majority find this practice shocking and indefensible. Horse slaughter is NOT euthanasia but it is the painful butchering of these American icons. Most of these horses are young, healthy and well suited for placement in loving homes. Recent court rulings have shut down the three slaughter plants in the U.S. but foreign companies are still able to export American horses to slaughter houses in Mexico and Canada. Without a federal ban, they will continue to transport horses across our borders for slaughter. Without a federal ban, we stand the chance of a new slaughter facility opening within our country. We appeal to Congress to end this cruel and inhumane practice once and for all by passing HR503/S311

    This is beyond comprehension to treat horses or any animal in this heinous way. Horses have done so much for us through out history. They are a national treasure and should be treated as such. We are suppose to be the care takers of animals not their killers! Please, please stop the slaughter here in America and everywhere! They should not send them on any horrible journey to another country either! Just stop this. It is truly evil.

    American horses, wild or domestic are not raised for slaughter. The wild horses land has been tainted by the BLM. They had their.land sprayed with Monsanto's Round-up.. which they in jest daily. Domestics, receive every 6 months a tube of various types of wormed, which clearly states not to be used on animals intended for slaughter... as well as other meds and tranquilizers. All are poisonous to humans. Equine slaughter is not humane.. their transport is not humane. There is too muck killing of healthy useable horses... it MUST stop!
    Vote For the Safe Food ACT!! America Wants it! Our horses Need it!
