Quite simple really. Please support this and add this stamp to your shoutboard if you agree. I don't however want to here anything about not banning it, if you want to argue, go somewhere else and do it!

Only about 70-75 pounds of meat from one horse is used for consumption, the rest is deemed unfit for humans to eat and is then discarded or put into petfoods as Animal by-product, or just totally discarded, depends on the slaughter house doing it. The edible meat is shipped to countries that eat horses regularly.
If horse slaughter is to continue, it should be done in more humane means.
I believe it has ended actually in America (I have to look this up) and because so, we have millions of unwanted horses which many end up for some guy's target practice (true story). Many of those unwanted horses end up on deckers headed for Mexico, which has more horrid slaughterhouse conditions than America had. The slaughter has ended taking place on our soil, but hasn't ended ultimately, as it's only us taking them out of the country to continue the business.
I think the way we kill the animals for food, is down right evil. Horses are beautiful animals. I dont understand we people will slaughter them. Same thing with Cats, Dogs, and other Small Animals[well, all animals really]
I support ending horse slaughter... and pig slaughter and cow slaughter and chicken slaughter etc. Where the line is drawn between "pets and produce" is 100% arbitrary. I have trouble understanding how people can be disgusted by eating dogs, cats and horses but still happily eat other kinds of meat.
