The horses are inoccent creatures, and it is unfair to slaughter them. Even if the horse was "uncontrollable" it was probably do to abuse or bad handling. If the reason they are being slaughtered is they are "old and useless" than it would be just as bad to send our "old and useless" grandparents to a slaughter house. The US tries to stop horse abuse, yet we are thinking of slaughtering them?!? For no reason?!! I think that defeats the purpose. Please sign to help prevent this injustice to one of the worlds most magnificent creatures.

      Thank you for this petition. This is a very sad situation which the majority of the American people don't know about...please make them aware that our American Majestic Horses are being slaughtered. Horses are not breed for the purpose of being slaughtered for human consumption…horses are given rabies, distemper, west nile, tetanus, and more shots which makes the meat unsafe for human consumption. I believe the majority of the American people don't know that American Horses are being slaughtered. Right now American Horses are being exported to Canada and Mexico on a long, crowded, injury, starved ride to death and some horses are being slaughtered right here by illegal slaughter houses and now some organizations / people are trying to bring horse slaughter back in the United States, right next door in North Dakota, South Dakota. These organizations/ people who are trying to bring back horse slaughter in the United States state the economy would be better, I don’t think so…horse slaughter is not the solution to the economy, more of your tax dollars will be spent on government inspectors and American people don’t eat the horse meat which is being shipped to foreign countries! And horse welfare well obviously these people have never seen the inhumane and cruel journey to horse slaughter… just go to U-Tube and type in horse slaughter and I believe the horse would rather take its chances with less health care and food or be euthanized then take the inhumane and cruel journey to horse slaughter. I know I would take less food and care then end up at horse slaughter. These horse aren’t old and sick, they are healthy horses waiting to be butchered. If in doubt go to UTUBE and type in horse slaughter and see the inhumane and cruelty which the horses sustain.

      WHAT CAN YOU DO: ASAP… Contact the White House 202-456-1111 or email at http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact and ask the President to issue an Executive Order to ban horse slaughter and the transport of US horses to slaughter, then call or email, Senators and Representatives, http://www.contactingthecongress.org/ and ask them to pass S1176 and HR2966 to stop and ban horse slaughter to our American Majestic Horses. Thank you from me and the HORSES!

      There are so many petitions and organizations trying to stop the slaughter of our national treasure the horse. Please post or get the number 1- 202-224-3121 out to your people to call to get the number of their congress person , you dont need to know their name just the state, to put pressure on them to not slaughter our greatest national treasure the horse since without them we wouldnt be where we are today. Signatures are all well and fine but they dont have the same impact as calls do. Thank you for your help to put pressure to pass HR2966 and reverse the horrible slaughter. Time Is Running Out! Our horses should have never been put on the menu and slaughtered for food. Thank you for your time.
