Sue Wallis, a representative of Wyoming and United Equine are trying to open a horse slaughterhouse in the tiny town of Rockville, Missouri. They say that this slaughterhouse will be a humane way to dispose of old and sick horses. However, the slaughterhouse will also be used to process horse meat for sale abroad, in Canada and Mexico, as well as right here in the United States of America. 

Horses are intelligent animals who have a strong flight instinct and throw their heads to avoid being hit. There is no way a horse slaughterhouse can be defined as humane. It is said that the plant proposes to slaughter 800 horses a day and that United Equine plans to partner with Chevideco, a Belgium company, which is one of the largest importers of horse meat in the world. www.chevideco.be.

Horses in the Unites States of America have been used as transportation, sacrificed their lives during war, led the Pony Express, play in multiple sports, used to help those with different types of disability and have been a true companion to millions of people. The relationship one has with their horse is one that they carry for the rest of their lives.

Please help stop the opening of this horse slaughterhouse. Also, for those who care about what they eat, horses are given a multitude of medications that has not been deemed safe for human consumption.

Thank you

Daphne Dyer

Clinton, Mo, United States of America

      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!
