Clearing the way to re-start horse slaughter in the U.S.

Field Notes - Clearing the way to re-start horse slaughter in the U.S.- Seattle Times Newspaper

There is a quote in this post from Michael Markarian of The Humane Society of the United States that sums up my opinion as well: "Allowing federal funds to be used to inspect horse slaughter plants would be a step backwards for America's iconic horses and a waste of tax dollars. Americans don't eat horses, and they don't want them inhumanely killed, shrink-wrapped, and sent to Japan or Belgium for a high-priced appetizer. It's time to stop the export of American horses for slaughter -- not add money to the cash-strapped federal budget to open more slaughter plants."

If we had my way, the government would stop capturing wild horses all together. Or almost all together.
