My vegetarian days are long over. I’ve beheaded chickens for meat and skinned deer myself. But this video is enough to make you ill. Don’t watch if you have a weak stomach.
Before I met Norm I just thought horses were pretty animals. While I’m nowhere near as passionate as he is, we consider our horses as highly intelligent pets and companions.
These are our “babies.” (Click for a larger image)
Needless to say, I’m staunchly against horse slaughtering. Wild horses used to roam freely across our country, and in 2004 restrictions were lifted and now the wild horses are being slaughtered and sent to foreign countries for human consumption.
Please don’t make this a political argument. This is cruel and unneccessary.
During the 2004 budget process former Senator Conrad Burns (R-MT) inserted a rider to strip 30 years of protection from slaughter for wild horses and burros. Since 2004, several dozen previously protected wild horses have been slaughtered and exported for human consumption.
Thanks to Conrad Burns, 140,000 American horses are exported for slaughter every year. He gets a million asshole points. Please sign the petition to keep horses from being needlessly slaughtered.
Please go here to help.
