If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: DON’T EAT THE EFFING HORSES!
Representatives from The Humane Society of the United States, along with members of congress and celebrities headed to Capitol Hill yesterday to show their support for the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act — a federal bill to prohibit the trafficking in horses for slaughter for human consumption in the United States and the export of horses for this purpose.
The group also called attention to the Bureau of Land Management’s cruel and unnecessary wild horse roundups.
Actors Kelly Carlson and Wendie Malick spoke passionately about their love of horses. Quoting Henry David Thoreau, Malick said, “We need the tonic of wildness.”
While there are currently no operational horse slaughter plants in the United States, tens of thousands of American horses are still being trucked thousands of miles across the border into Mexico and Canada to be brutally slayed.
