WHEN A HORSE IS NO LONGER OF ANY USE IN MEXICO
THE FOLLOWING PHOTOS SHOW WHERE THEY GO AND THE LIVING HELL THEY MUST SUFFER
HORSES ARE LOADED UNTO TRUCKS AND BEATEN WITH CLUBS
WAITING TO BE SELECTED FOR SLAUGHTER
A STUN GUN IS USED TO RENDER THEM UNCONSCIOUS, REGRETTABLY THIS DOESN’T ALWAYS HAPPEN AND SOME HORSES ARE SLAUGHTERED WHILE THEY ARE STILL CONSCIOUS.
THE POOR WEE DONKEY KNOWS WHERE HE IS GOING AND TRIES TO GET AWAY
THE HORSE ABOVE WAS IN SUCH TERRIBLE SHAPE IT WAS A MIRACLE IT WAS STILL ABLE TO STAND.
WHAT KIND OF SCUM WOULD TREAT AN ANIMAL OF ANY KIND LIKE THIS?
THE END OF A LONG AND HORRIBLE JOURNEY
THE VIDEO BELOW SHOWS THAT HORSE SLAUGHTER HAPPENS IN THE UNITED STATES AND IT ALSO HAPPENS IN CANADA
IT’S A TEN MINUTE VIDEO, BUT PLEASE WATCH IT AND THEN WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESS AND ASK THEM TO STOP THIS HORRIBLE PRACTISE. CANADIANS CAN WRITE TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA AT: firstname.lastname@example.org

Most horses that end up slaughtered are bought by killer-buyers acting on behalf of the slaughterhouses. Sometimes these horses have been abandoned by irresponsible owners who no longer wish to care for them; more often, owners surrender their horses to a person who promises to care for them but then sells them for slaughter. And many have been stolen by horse thieves or rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management which although charged with protecting wild horses facilitates their being sent to slaughter instead.
The horses’ pain begins well before they reach the plants. They are transported in unspeakably inhumane conditions in crowded trailers, unprotected from heat or cold and deprived of food and water for a day or more. Many do not survive or arrive at the slaughterhouses too injured or sick to stand. Abused, terrified and desperate, they are killed by a captive bolt gun, which shoots a metal rod into the horse’s brain.
