      This is horrific and just pure inhumane! It makes me cry to think we as civilized human beings are allowing this to happen in our country. It is barbaric, violent, cruel, unjust, and motivated out of pure greed for money by these ruthless butchers. It has to be stopped at that's all there is to it.

      SLAUGHTER/CONSUMPTION OF HORSES IS UN-AMERICAN!

      Horse slaughter creates extensive environmental and neighborhood problems. The smell and waste devalue homes and neighborhoods. The plants historically shun humane and environmental regulations. Americans do not, as a rule, eat horses, so the product will be exported. Let the countries that consume the product also bare the burden of the industry. The industry does not create the type of jobs that benefit communities, being mostly low wage jobs. Horses in this country, raised as companion animals instead of meat animals, are treated with drugs that make them unsafe for human consumption, Finally, the slaughter of horses is a horrible thing, decried by humane slaughter experts in this country. Please, please PLEASE keep this dirty, irreverent industry out of our country.

      Furthermore, please take this to the next level and not allow American horses to be transported out of country for slaughter in Canada or Mexico. The horses that are sold to slaughter, often unbeknownst to the sellers who think they are selling their pets to individuals who will care for the horses, are horribly mistreated during the long trip, and are slaughtered without consideration. Horse slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada are documented to be extremely cruel and inhumane. Please stop this practice, and instead enact breeding restrictions to reduce the number of unwanted horses, and funding for humane euthanasia, so that unwanted horses can be eliminated in a humane way.

      Please, hear this plea.

      Because the BLM is the Bureau of Lyin' Motherfuckers, completely sold out to ranching, mining and drilling interests. Public land belogs to all Americans.

      Horses should have the same rights as our other companion animals. Which is death by humane euthanasia not cruel slaughter!
