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
