92% Of Horses Going To Slaughter Are Healthy

January 12, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Despite the United States having shut down the last remaining horse slaughter plants in 2005, the USDA recently approved an inspection license for a plant in New Mexico. It’s clear the USDA plans to allow the reopening of these horrific facilities, taking the nation several steps backwards.

Not only do opinion polls cite that 80% of Americans are opposed to horse slaughter of any kind but this practice is inhumane and wasteful. Millions of taxpayer dollars as well as healthy and productive horses are culled in the horse meat market.

Speak out against the horse meat market — demand that the USDA reject all applications for inspections of horse slaughter facilities.
