Here in the United States, horses aren't exactly considered a delicacy in the food world. In fact, in a recent poll, about 80% of Americans are opposed to horse slaughter of any kind.

White House Responds to Horse Slaughter Controversy


Official U.S. Department of Agriculture Response to Restore humane horse slaughter to improve horse welfare, stop needless & wasteful suffering & create jobs. and 1 other petition

Ensuring the Humane Treatment of Horses

UPDATE: December 13, 2011

By Dr. Elisabeth Hagen

 

Thank you for writing to relay your concerns regarding horse slaughtering. We appreciate your involvement in the We the People project and value your input on issues facing our country.

Recently Congress lifted a ban prohibiting federal funding for the inspection of horses, which had prevented the slaughter of horses for human consumption for the past five years. While Congress has technically lifted the ban, USDA does not expect horse slaughter to resume in the near term as a number of Federal, state and local requirements and prohibitions remain in place. Furthermore, there have been no requests that the Department initiate the authorization process for any horse slaughter operation in the United States at this time.

While some horses continue to be exported to other countries for slaughter, USDA makes it a priority to ensure that these horses are transported and treated humanely. For example, USDA recently extended protection to horses delivered to collection points prior to export, reflecting the Administration's commitment to protecting animal welfare.

Thank you again for your input on this important issue.

Dr. Elisabeth Hagen serves as Under Secretary for Food Safety at the USDA

Thank you for writing to relay your concerns regarding horse slaughtering. We appreciate your involvement in the We the People project and value your input on issues facing our country.

The humane treatment of horses reflects the values of our Nation. Since 2007, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been barred from using appropriated funds to inspect horse slaughter facilities, so no federally inspected horse slaughter facilities have operated since that time. While some horses continue to be exported to other countries for slaughter, USDA makes it a priority to ensure that these horses are transported and treated humanely. For example, USDA recently extended protection to horses delivered to collection points prior to export, reflecting the Administration's commitment to protecting animal welfare.

Thank you again for your input on this important issue.

Edward Avalos is Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Reform Programs at the USDA

Inhumane Horse Slaughtering in Quebec

The horses are old or ill or just no longer useful to their owners. Often thin, heads hanging low, ribs protruding, they stand quietly, dejected. You can see the fear in their eyes as they enter the stun box. If they are lucky, they lose consciousness after one jolt with the bolt gun. Sometimes they stumble and are stunned repeatedly. Sometimes they cry out.

It is vital that we renew the push to pass The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (S. 1176/H.R. 2966) that will prohibit horse slaughter from returning to the U.S. and end the export of American horses for slaughter

'Wyoming state representative Sue Wallis and her pro-slaughter group estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants."

Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act (H.R. 503/S. 727) would help put an end to the inhumane cruelty of horse transport and slaughter by making it illegal to ship, transport, buy, sell, deliver, receive, or possess a horse for slaughter for human consumption

Approximately 100,000 horses are annually sold for slaughter, and every day that this bill does not pass means another 274 horses are brutally shipped, handled, mistreated, and inhumanely butchered.
