This facility would be located at the junction of interstate 84 and Westland Rd, near a local sale yard. This facility would be visible to those driving on the Interstate. This proposed facility could potentially process 150 to 200 horses daily. Most of these horses would be shipped to countries in Asia and Europe for human consumption. This facility would be detrimental to the long term image, future development and overall livability of our community. The purpose of this petition is to discourage this proposal before it goes any further. This petition will act as a way for those concerned citizens to oppose this proposal. Also this petition will give a voice to the horses that could potentially be slaughtered if this plant is built and operated near Hermiston.

      Horses are part of the American Heritage and should be respected and protected as such. To slaughter these magnificent, majestic animals is both brutal and wrong. I appeal to you to not allow this bloodshed on American soil. We do not want to promote the eating of horse meat in our country. I adamantly oppose this plant being built, the horse slaughter industry and request that the building of this plant be stopped/denied/prohibited. We the people of the US should have a say in what happens to the animals that are part of America's heritage. Vote no, stop this slaughter... listen to the people and do not allow this plant to be built. Let the europeans kill their own horses--americans do not eat or want to eat horse meat... stop the senseless brutal act. Horses are gentle, creatures that will serve humans with their whole hearts--to murder them is flat wrong!! If you have a conscience and are not greedy--you will not do this to your community or the american people who appose this!!
