    Horse Slaughter is inhumane. There is no such thing as humane horse slaughter. Horses are not food. They are icons. Helped build a nation. What an atrocity these horses are exploited and die every day because of greed. What an atrocity! And our tax dollars are paying for it and the majority oppose it. When are people going to stand up and do the right thing for these innocent creatures.

    Please do not allow the round-up of wild horses and burros by the BLM. They are breaking up family units, killing foals and sending them off to be auctioned off and some shipped off to be killed. Please stop this!

    Let me start out by saying that horses are by far my favorite animals-including humans. I have a 27 year old whom I pay upwards of $500 per month to keep happy and healthy. Once she becomes perpetually unhappy or in pain, I will put her down. This too will cost over $500 for the vet and for the disposal of remains. I am fortunate to have the money to care for her. Many do not. Banning the slaughter of horses in this country caused an epidemic of abandoned, starving, and neglected horses. Please ask yourselves which is more humane: a quick death or a slow and painful one that can go on for months or years? Additionally, due to the banning of slaughter in this country, those bought for slaughter (because THERE WAS NO ONE TO PROVIDE FOR THEM) they must be transported hundreds or thousands of miles in, oftentimes, less than adequate manners. Still, this is more humane than slowly starving to death. Finally, to all of you who think we shouldn't slaughter, are you going to adopt all these horses? No. You are not. You believe you are thinking altruistically, with your heart, however, what you are truly doing is being phenomenally selfish and unthoughtful.

    The largest inhumane treatment beyond an ultimate inhumane manner of death is the in the shipping of horses across Canadian and Mexican borders. Horses are stacked without food and water for long periods of time in all types of weather conditions without adequate food and water. The loads are composed of very old, very young and pregnant animals, and all ages and sizes in between. Many are trampled or injured on the trip without adequate medical care. Horses in this country are not raised as consumable livestock and should not be designated as such in this country or out.

    There are other ways to limit over-population of horses, like the PZP vaccine which has proven to be effective. Yet, our government is rounding up horses all around the country, claiming the horses are underfed/watered. They are rounded up with helicopters. :( Some are immediately put down. Others are sold at auctions. Current laws allow foreign countries to buy lots of horses of 25 at a time for slaughter houses. Our national heritage...these majestic creatures...are allowed to be slaughtered. This is not okay. https://americanwildhorsecampaign.org/myth-vs-fact
