Petition Closed

Imagine when you get old or disabled and unable to work or even just plain healthy you get shipped off to be killed and sold to places to be eaten. Doesn't sound so good does it? It definitely doesn't sound good to a horse! Congress and Obama was decided to lift the ban and are going to make it okay to open slaughter houses in the US. I'm not sure about you but this definitely doesn't sound like a good idea. Many horses that are unable to work or get to old are shipped to other countries these days to get slaughter and killed for their meat. Most of the times horses are semi-conscious when they are slaughtered!  These animals are the symbols of the old west and are wonderful pets! They helped build our great country! I’m asking for people to sign this and keep the slaughter of horses illegal in the US and ban the export of live horses to other countries, because me personally I do not want to waste our tax dollars on funding horse slaughtering houses! Live horses are shipped to other countries 24/7 to be slaughtered and this needs to stop. Help ban the export of live horses to other countries for slaughter!
