Thanks Brenda, will sign any petition and take any action. Am all geared up to begin the calling and faxxing "assault" on those who have not signed on as co-sponsors for HR 6598. We did not manage to get this passed last congressional session, altho it looked promising, we who care about our horses and are not willing to buy into the pro-slaughter continuing barage of lies and distortions will not give up trying.

Thank you for putting this petition on here for us all to see. Have gone and signed the petition just now. It's hard to believe our country which considers itself civilized still allows this kind of midevil behavior.

To me a horse has so much pride and dignity and should not die like this. I think it is very unethical. I could not sign as a South African, but their are ways around it.

We're sorry, but it appears that you are not eligible to participate in this campaign. This could be for one of several reasons, possibly:

You do not live in the target state or district, or if you do;
We were not able to map your address to your elected official

I may have signed already but went to the site to make sure as I have signed several recently on this issue. It is no longer active and directed me to the HSUS.org website. It certainly didn't stay up very long!

A tip for the non USA citizens - if you are determined to sign:
Choose any state, and put your own postal code in, then add one more digit so that the postal code / zip code has five digits and happily sign! I don't feel guilty about doing this - the cruelty to animals have no borders, as far as I'm concerned - but that is just my opinion...
