U.S. Horses Should Not Be Slaughtered to Provide Toxic Meat

Dear Friend,
American horses are treated as companions, competitors, and work partners. Horses in America are not raised as food animals and are regularly given a variety of chemicals that have been prohibited for human consumption, are toxic if ingested, or the effects of ingestion have never been tested. The USDA and FDA cannot guarantee the safety of meat from American horses because they are not regulated in the same way as farm animals traditionally raised as food. The Obama administration can eliminate the brutality of horse slaughter and the food safety threats posed to foreign consumers by granting The Humane Society of the United States' and Front Range Equine Rescue's petitions.
Please make a brief, polite phone call today to the White House at (202) 456-1111, urging the administration to grant petitions filed by The HSUS to eliminate the threats created by the slaughter of American horses for food. And don't forget to send a follow-up message. Thank you for all you do for animals.
Wayne Pacelle
Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO
