Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections, and activists say slaughterhouses could be up and running in as little as a month. Horses are too intelligent to be food animals. Legal processing of horse meat will endanger wild horse populations and motivate Americans to raise horses specifically for human consumption. In order to keep a horse healthy, drugs are given to horses. Those drugs are toxic to humans. No horse slaughterhouse in the United States. No death sentence for Horses.
