Horse Slaughter Back On

FINAL VOTE RESULTS FOR ROLL CALL 857- H R 2112

These are the names of those who voted on Nov. 17th for and against this barbaric passage quietly lifting the ban on funding horse meat inspections, now making it with almost certainty that slaughter houses will be up and running ASAP.

The options facing Congress were to further ban export of horses for slaughter or to lift the domestic slaughter ban. Congress chose the latter.

Horses Could Soon Be Slaughtered for Meat in US

Within this article and others:

Dave Duquette, president of the nonprofit, pro-slaughter group United Horsemen, said no state or site has been picked yet but he’s lined up plenty of investors who have expressed interest in financing a processing plant. While the last three slaughterhouses in the U.S. were owned by foreign companies, he said a new plant would be American-owned.

“I have personally probably five to 10 investors that I could call right now if I had a plant ready to go,” said Duquette, who lives in Hermiston, Ore. He added, “If one plant came open in two weeks, I’d have enough money to fund it. I’ve got people who will put up $100,000.”

Rep. Adrian Smith, a Nebraska Republican who fought for the change. “Reinstating a humane, accountable and legal management tool is good for horses, good for owners and is good policy.”

Sue Wallis, a Wyoming state lawmaker who’s the group’s vice president, said ranchers used to be able to sell horses that were too old or unfit for work to slaughterhouses but now they have to ship them to butchers in Canada and Mexico, where they fetch less than half the price.

The federal ban devastated “an entire sector of animal agriculture for purely sentimental and romantic notions,” she said.

ROMANTIC did this bitch say?

How about we cut the throats of her children? Or would that be too sentimental?

Has this piece of garbage and the others who voted for this on again slaughter ever been around horses? Have they ever looked into their eyes? Been in a stall with one who has a ritual of playing with you with different mannerisms because of the love that horse has for you.

Does any of these Yea votes understand or realize how passionate and loving these Horses really are?

18 Horses left Starving to Death and Owner TICKETED?

Enraged is the only word to describe this horror story. But what infuriates me even more is that Animal Control visited this farm several times over a month ago. One horse was so emaciated it couldn’t be even saved.
