The horse slaughter industry in Canada is one of the largest; these gentle animals that have served us for centuries are shipped off to factories and forced to endure a tragic fate. Most of these horses come from auctions where about half of them end up

why do we have so many people who are satisfied with being inhumane? I wish we didn't seem to enjoy causing harm.

Signed. I saw a show the other night and A man kills a deer with an arrow and puts a dress on the deer dead body. When the poor deer's body is found, one man laughs and takes a photo of it, the other man says " this is not funny, it is animal cruelty and very wrong. The man says" what is the problem Deer's are over populated, the other man says " man pushing his way on to every animals habitat and they never kill us, only man kills and has to keep finding a reason to kill". So , true man wants to kill everything and than he will have to start on people, but that will not last long, because without all the wildlife and trees and whales and etc. man will not have very long to live. I read that we should look at the rainforest as our lungs, because they give us over 40% of the oxygen we need to live. and yet man cuts it down for money. The Ocean and all the life in it give us another 30% of oxygen and we are destroying that. Man is truly a very sick animal.

Apart from many reasons, i cant get over how humans have such a short memory, how horses not so long ago were part of the family, without a horse nobody went anywhere, they took us millions of miles to new territorys, saved us from our enemies in war, died for us in war...and this is the way that we humans repay the faithfull souls that stand beside us through thick and thin. I can only shake my head, there is nothing i can do to save them from the horror and terror that WE deal out to them. How can we live with ourselves?

S & N, thanks for all you do my friend. It is a real shame to kill these magnificent horses like that. They did nothing to deserve such treatment. Many people have horses as pets, especially on farms. Stop killing them.

Horse slaughter is a crime: the owners of these places deserve prison, not profits! Signed and noted, thanks, Cher.

I noticed a big error in this otherwise well-written petition and contacted forcechange.com about it. There is no way to contact the petition writer directly through Force Change. The first paragraph says "The horse-slaughter houses in Mexico are completely horrific...." Now doubt that's true, but this petition is about the Canadian slaughter house industry.
