Ban Horse Slaughter Now!
As a result of spending bill H2112, slaughterhouses in the United States will be able to resume slaughtering horses for human consumption. We are not a nation that raises horses as food animals or one that consumes horse meat. Rather, horses are largely considered companion animals, more similar to dogs and cats than to animals raised for consumption. They should therefore be treated as such, and not subjected to mass slaughter.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." - Mahatma Gandhi
That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama.
