Horse Slaughter Prevention Act

PETITION: Pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act to ban the barbaric butchering of American horses.

TARGET: US House of Representatives

Thousands of American horses continue to be slaughtered and their meat sold to foreign countries. These horses are shipped long distances in hot, cramped trailers without food or rest and often times live in very inhumane conditions. The majority of these horses are young and able bodied and could lead very productive lives. This bill will also prevent the possibility of slaughterhouses operating domestically.

Please sign and share this petition asking the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act.

We the undersigned urge you to vote for and pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. Each year tens of thousands of American horses are sold at livestock auctions where they are ultimately sold to middlemen who go on to sell them to slaughterhouses outside of the U.S border in Mexico and Canada. They spend long hours in cramped conditions, deprived of food, water and rest until they are across the border where they are pushed through the slaughterhouse and their meat sold to other foreign countries. We also oppose the possibility of slaughterhouses operating domestically.

Respectfully,

This too is barbaric! The medications commonly used to treat American horses make the meat carcinogenic. I don't care that the meat isn't allowed to be sold in America, it shouldn't be sold ANYWHERE! I'd honestly like to see anyone who would give other people cancer just to enrich themselves forced to undergo the most awful course of chemotherapy as punishment! They are willing to kill others, who deserves it more?
