Please take action to get these bills passed to protect equines in the long haul from unscrupulous people who would profit from the slaughter of wild horses and burros. Their treatment of these animals causes untold suffering and they must not be allowed to get away with this. 10-29-05

Join HSUS' campaign to end horse slaughter forever. humanelines@hsus.org
Write your Legislators http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/

Congress has spared thousands of animals the agony of being hauled over hundreds of miles and then brutally slaughtered for export as horse meat. Unfortunately, however, the House leadership, through backroom dealing, succeeded in inserting a 120-day phase-in period, during which time horses will continue to be slaughtered. They also included language intended to prohibit any future appropriations amendments to stop horse slaughter.


As a result, we MUST get a permanent ban on horse slaughter in place as soon as possible
.

Two bills have been introduced in Congress that would permanently ban horse slaughter -– HR 503 and S 1915. While the new amendment will help protect horses during the upcoming year, it’s only a temporary reprieve for these beloved animals.

Because you were so successful with the amendment, we’re asking you today to let your voices be heard again: Help us remove our horses from the whims of back-room negotiators and place them beyond the reach of the butchers for good.

Contact your legislators today to say you’re glad Congress approved the horse slaughter ban amendment, and to urge them to make sure horse slaughterhouses never open again! Ask that they co-cponsor HR 503 in the House and S 1915 in the Senate.
