I'm working on the assumption that if you read this Blog, you are very likely against the slaughter of horses for their meat. Like us, you probably see a horse as more of a trusted companion than as livestock chattel.
So what do anti-slaughter supporters do now?
First and most importantly- we need to EDUCATE everyone we can about OUR VIEW. Many people out there haven't even thought about this issue, and the topic is surrounded with propaganda and intentionally misguiding sound bytes from the pro-slaughter camps. Here's what I wish everyone who was pro-slaughter, or even undecided, would know before they decided to take that stance.
|Does this look "humane?"|
Now here's some GOOD NEWS.
H.R. 2966: The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 is in Congress. Call. Write. Be calm, concise, and professional. Tell your friends. Tell your co-workers. Tell people on the street if you must!
America's horses don't need this, and this is our last chance to protect them!

Unless you are OK with this being a horse you owned, bred, or once rode; you need to oppose horse slaughter. Every single one was SOMEONE'S.
