The captive bolt is not humane.
In fact, the captive bolt was tested for and meant to be
used for cattle and hogs, NOT HORSES. Horses are flight animals.
Just like the double deck trailers were built for hogs, sheep, and
cattle, not for horses.
All avenues are telling us we are not to be slaughtering
our horses or eating them.
Slaughter is not necessary. Euthanasia is a proper method when the time comes. It is the owners responsibility to prepare for
a horses end of the trail. Texas A & M reported back in 2006, the method of composting a horse. There are still render plants.
Dog food no longer has horse meat/ by products in it because of the unsafe meds that most horses are fed.
It is not the responsibility of our Government to find a solution to the horses the owners are having a hard time feeding in this economy.Horses are expensive animals to own.
The only way over breeding is going to stop, is to shut the gates so our horses no longer go for slaughter.
Isn't it strange the ones owning these horse slaughter plants were foreigners?
