Dear Fellow Horsemen/Women/Others,
Although horse slaughterhouses have been shuttered in this country, each year thousands of horses continue to be shipped across our borders into Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered for their meat, which is then sent to European markets. What happens to these horses every single day on their journey en-route to slaughter is just so appalling. So, I thought I might I urge you to consider reporting on the treatment of horses.
The mistreatment of these animals during the series of shipments, and feedlot layovers is well documented, and in violation of the law. Under the Freedom of Information Act, (FOIA) on October 29, 2008 Animals Angels obtained USDA investigative reports documenting the horrific, and illegal treatment of horses in transport to slaughter. I'd like to warn those who have an aversion to graphic content. These images are more than a little bit disturbing. But I'm urging you to please view as the text within is so very important and we'd like you to know just how important this issue has become. Please See:
The inhumane and illegal treatment of horses in transport to slaughter continues to this day. While Americans may disagree on the necessity of horse slaughter, I think there would be no disagreement on how these beautiful animals should be treated en-route to it. A journalistic investigation, would go a long way in helping us to reveal this issue. We need to let Americans know about what evils are perpetrated and get some help for the horses. If you won't do it for the horses, how about as a personal favor to me?
