Saved from a trip to a Canadian slaughterhouse going home soon to help autistic child.
The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition ( CDHC) denies the accusation from Bill desBarres, Chairman of the Horse Welfare Alliance of Canada ( HWAC) that footage presented of Bouvry Exports and Viande Richelieu are false. DesBarres, a long time proponent of horse slaughter has continually praised the Canadian Food Inspection Agency ( CFIA) assuring the public of the humane treatment of horses. He claims the people who produced the footage are against animal agriculture.
IN THE HANDS OF KILL BUYERS! When horses are purchased at auction by buyers intending to kill them, they're hauled away in double- decker tractor trailers where they are beaten and often blinded with baseball bats to mollify them. After crossing the border into Mexico, the animals are stabbed on each side-an act to tenderize their meat-and immobilized. Workers, then saw the horses legs off, at the knee and hang them to bleed out-all while the horses are ALIVE! (This is an excerpt, from an article written by Missy Diaz, crediting Victoria Mc Cullough and Sen. Joe Abruzzo for bringing awareness of horse slaughter, to Florida. In 2010 Florida Legislation unanimously passed the Horse Protection Bill, making it a felony to slaughter horses for personal or commercial use.)
