Evil, there is no other name for the perpetuators of the mass
massacre that occurs every day to thousands of horses in the equine slaughter industry.
The Canadian Slaughter industry and their allies want you, the horse owner, to think
that slaughtering horses is necessary. They also want the Canadian horse owners and the public to believe
that processing - a fancy new term for slaughtering horses -
is all done humanely and that the horses do not suffer.
The Slaughter industry and their allies continue to insult and belittle the public and horse owners intelligence by
a clever strategy that sugar-coats the nightmare of what is truly a
hellish and horrific way for any live being to die: Death by torture.
all our troubles seemed so far away ...
The Truth is: There is no such thing as slaughtering a horse humanely. It simply
cannot be done due to the very nature of the horse.
Dr. Lester Friedlander, DVM & former Chief USDA Inspector, in regard to the
captive bolt used to slaughter horses which Dr. Friedlander states is simply not effective.
Horses and other equines, in particular, are very sensitive about anything
coming towards their heads and cannot be restrained as required for effective stunning.
Dr. Friedlander observed that, "These animals regain consciousness 30 seconds after being struck,
they are fully aware they are being vivisected."
Anyone who claims that the slaughter industry is slaughtering horses
humanely (no such thing exists)
is simply supporting the ongoing torturing of horses to death in Canada behind closed slaughter factory doors.
The brutality that occurs to the innocent
and irreplaceable equine lives is barbaric: Horses meet
their maker in horror, extreme fright, excrutiating and prolonged pain, many being skinned alive while
until, finally, it's all over. ER
ER, Veterinarians, experts, celebrities, horse advocates, and numerous others agree uniformly that if a horse must be put down to end suffering or a life that has lost
all quality, the humane method that is universally agreed on is a veterinarian-assisted humane euthanasia.
The video footage from Canadian slaughter houses demonstrate
the reality of horse slaughtering which is still occuring against thousands more horses as you are watching these.

and friends and celebrities who support our view, today.
