Horses Spared in the US Face Death Abroad

More tragedy faces horses that once were legally slaughtered in the US, which are instead being sent to Canada or Mexico to be slaughtered, traveling hundreds more miles, often in crowded trailers, without food or water. In U.S. slaughter plants, horses were killed by having steel pins driven through their heads; however, in Mexico, they are disabled by having their spinal cords severed with a knife. Animal advocates are pushing for federal legislation that would forbid the sale and transport of horses for human consumption, therefore banning the export market.

Horses, God's animals, are facing tremendous suffering due to the quest for taste and profit. The horse-slaughter ban, which should have been a compassionate gesture toward horses, has turned out to cause more suffering to tens of thousands of them. Legislation is urgently needed to get rid of this "loophole" that allows US horses to be slaughtered abroad and to put and end to the callousness of this industry.
