- 2484 days ago -
Two weeks ago at San Bernabe', a Pregnant Mare was forced to jump off a one meter ramp. It was horrible...Everyone heard her knees crack and break on impact. Then she was dragged with ropes to be killed on the side.....The animal was in complete agony.

I agree with Pam B. Their tourism has already dropped because of the narcos, but plaster the world with this inexcusable atrocity. Who can possibly say there is any HONOR in Mexico? But. It is exactly like the BLM that ignores the law and continues its insanity, too. As for American horse owners that ship their animals to this hellhole, they need to experience the exact same death. Homo SAPiens. Is there any honor, anywhere?

I believe that Mexico shouldn't get one more peso until things change. Where is all that money going, if not to improve things? This needs to become an international issue. I loath to think my hard-earned tax dollars are going to a country that does this.

This is so nightmarish that it doesn't even register in my head. The horror, the pain, the abject cruelty, the machismo men with a devil's heart. Hope they rot in hell, on earth--- and in the next life---forever and ever!!
How can humans actually do this to a living breathing feeling sweet animal?
Why oh why doesn't the church who controls these people SAY something for gods' sake? It would only take a word from their pope and/or religious leader, about cruelty to animals and everlasting fire and damnation----and it would stop overnight!!! How come churches don't speak up? The governments seem to be powerless even if they try, so how about all of us writing to their pope? Would he listen?
This hideousness to animals world-wide is the fault of the religious....(sorry to blame something, but-----we humans have this need to blame when things become too sick, too out of control, too incomprehensible to process; to find reasons, to find blame)....and this time I think the blame is justified.
Religions NEED to speak up for the ones who cannot speak our languages....why else are religions here on earth if not to be the moral voice for the voiceless? Animals, children, the innocent.................what exactly do religions do if not this? Build their coffers to please their members who build their coffers to please their churches who give pats on the back to members who build their coffers?
What a lot of crap most religions are..........not all people in them are evil, but I have no love of religious organizations who cannot do what their prophets would have them a loving force for ALL creatures on earth! Does anyone out there have any other suggestions other than mine? One angry and threatening statement from religious leaders world wide would put an end to animal cruelty all over our world!! Damn to hell these animal torturers and watch the world change in a heartbeat.

I signed and shared this petition. Mexico and Canada are the last equine slaughter destinations in North America. They all need to be closed. There is no such thing as humane slaughter, especially when it comes to equines (they slaughter burros and mules, too). The people running these hell holes are totally without any conscience at all and I truly think they enjoy inflicting as much pain as they can on these creatures of GOD. They all need to be closed. If it happens one at a time, that's okay, as long as it happens!

First of all, we need to BOYCOTT horse racing and rodeos because horses are overbred and then tossed aside like so much garbage when they don't meet "standards" set by these cruel and inhumane "entertainments." Second, all of you women out there that take Premarin and other synthetic hormones contribute to this senseless slaughter because, again, mares are kept constantly pregnant so this hormone can be extracted from their urine. The foals are discarded like trash. Please boycott the use of this product. I went through menopause without a single DROP of synthetic hormone and am doing just fine. There are better, more natural alternatives.

WE humans keep letting these atrocities happen. The cultures of cruelty that bring so much suffering to our fellow creatures must be held accountable. Mexico has long been one of the cruelest, most brutal cultures in the world and have ALWAYS treated animals like so much disposable waste. As shocking as this is, I am not surprised and won't set foot on Mexican soil, refuse to participate in any horse race, dog race, rodeo, circus or other "sport" where brutality toward animals is routinely practiced. Horses and other equines are such sensitive, social creatures and for this barbarity to be done to them is beyond criminal. We must find a way to bring serious accountability to the MURDERERS who so callously harm so many.

This is the unintended consequence of banning horse slaughter in the US. It has vastly increased the suffering of horses. The killing of a horse is a tragedy, but it will happen. The more oversight, the better for the animal. There was more oversight in US killing plants. I am not defending horse slaughter, only saying it will happen and we should be willing to make it as humane as possible.

Heather, that is a racist generality about a whole group of people. The issue here is about people who are involved in animal cruelty. It has nothing to do with all Mexicans, ONLY those people that are committing the atrocity. I've met Mexicans that are kind, responsible, people and it is not fair to lump the good with the bad.

Diane L (110)
Thursday July 7, 2011, 3:51 am
This is absolutely disgusting, but what far too many don't realize, especally most who have commented on Care.2 blogs such as this one, is that IF we re-opened the plants in the U.S. and regulated them, this would not be as much of an issue or possibility. Far too many horse owners have been forced to send their animals to either Mexico or Canada where there are no regulations. Thisis proof of just that. We're not going to control what happens there, and it's simply looking at the world thru "rose colored glasses" to think signing a petition here will influence those bastards in another country, especially Mexico!

Diane L (110)
Thursday July 7, 2011, 4:06 am
Please understand that my comment "above" is made as a horse lover, and I've owned horses for 41 years. Slaughter would never be an option that I'd chose, but for those who would, it should be available closer to where they live and before any animal is suffering as this mare was. I have a rescued TB mare who was in about the same shape when I got her, although no broken bones....just starving. She's now quite healthy and I can't find a home for her.....nobody wants her. She has a home with me until that happens, though. I just saw on my news tonight that 26 horses were rescued in my area and most were as bad off as this mare. The owner had no way of feeding them, so didn't. He/she also had no options of sending to slaughter as it's too far to do and make a cent, especially considering how skinny they all were, so they were simply starved.

This is so so disgusting these evil bastards that treat animals in this way are SCUM and should be treated the way they treat the animals. I would personally love to break the legs of these evil people. What is the matter with the human race that they think its OK to treat animals so cruely. Animals have the same feelings as we do they feel pain fear stress etc. This poor girl was also pregnant so they murdered the Mother and baby, what evil sadistic scum these people are, all I can say is I hope that they have a very long and painfull death and then rot in hell. RIP IN PEACE YOU POOR POOR CREATURES TREATED SO BADLY BY THE HUMAN RACE. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.

I can't even begin to find something to say. That she would even be slaughtered for food is an abomination, that she would have to die in fear, bewilderment and agony, that she was forced to walk ona broken foot, fell and broke both legs, then was dragged to her death. I can't even feel anything but sick.

God I wish people would just grow some compassion. Stop hurting animal. Stop eating animals. Stop destroying animal's habitats. We are not the only thing that matters on this Earth. We are so greedy, cruel, and short-sighted that we will soon become Earth's destroyers.

Poor beautiful girl. She was not born to die this way. Stupid, disgusting, brutal sadists.who did this. What bad karma to them.

STOP EATING MEAT!! If no one is going to buy a product, why produce it???!!! It makes no sense to me that someone claims to be against animal abuse but can eat them. There are way to many people that believe that if you can eat cows, pigs and chickens why not anything else. God should have NEVER created animals!

All these animal abusers are Satans followers and they can all go to Hell and live with Satan! In the meantime, these disgusting, ignorant humans need to be taken out of society and dumped on some remote island and let them rot! Not just Mexico, the U.S. and all over the world!

I am DONE, no more making excuses for animal abusers, No more 30 days in jail, $200 fine. DEATH PENALTY AS SOON AS THEY ARE ARRESTED AND BOOKED!!

And if anyone other than the people who REALLY CARE about animals think that is insane, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THOSE PHOTOS!!!!

It takes heartless people to treat animals in this manner, and so many of those heartless people are the ones taking the jobs where they are in contact with the animals. They don't see these animals as anything but work and a paycheck at the end of the week. If the animal slows down the work, they do what they have to to make the animal move. If the animal annoys them in any way, they beat them. They have take out their hate and frustrations on the weaker ones because they can. It's just disgusting. No regard for life at all.

Lori, you said, "I signed this back in April,, " and I thought this happened just a couple of weeks ago? Another member posted he signed "in August". This is July, folks. Is this old stuff or recent? Yes, horse slaughter is going on NOW in Mexico. What I'm asking is if this particular incident is recent or happened a year ago, and if a year ago, why is it now being mentioned, and what good will a petition about THIS do, now?

What should be done, and far more effective, is to first of all, re-open the plants in this country (the U.S. but I realize I'm suggesting something that is revulsive to bleeding hearts who don't want to face reality and think that signing a petition sent to another country will solve the "issue". No, it isn't going to change a thing as far as people having animals they can't or WON'T properly take care of.

Second suggestion.....if this is recent, then find out WHERE this mare came from. Who owned her? Find the owner and prosecute for animal cruelty. She didn't end up like this overnight. It would have taken months of starvation to result in this deplorable condition.

Diane L (110)

Sarah said, "STOP EATING MEAT!! If no one is going to buy a product, why produce it???!!! It makes no sense to me that someone claims to be against animal abuse but can eat them".....a little FYI, Sarah.....nobody creates horses to slaughter for meat. They are bred for many reasons, and sometimes accidently, but facts are that some buy a horse with no clue what it costs to maintain them .......feed them, provide vet care, farrier care, etc., and when they can't or won't buy feed, won't pay a vet to euthanize the horse and there is NO market for them to sell unless they are highly bred, very well trained or certain breeds. So, they simply abandon them or if the horse is lucky, it's sent to slaughter for hopefully, a quickER death. I have a VERY highly bred Thoroughbred mare that I rescued. Her former owner paid $30,000 for a stud fee to CREATE her, and when she didn't make it on the track, or produce a winner for him, he gave her a guy who starved her. She looked just like this mare, but with no broken bones, when I rescued her last December. She's FULLY recovered, sound, in good flesh and could be a great riding horse, but I can't find a home for her. She's only 11 years old!

I would like to put a tail on those Sons of Bitches and do the same to them. Just hang the Bastards or slaughter them in a public place and let the rest know you do this, this is what happens to you!!! I love animals

The petition in "question", was posted some time back, to stop & shut down this hell-house Mexican slaughterhouse, PERIOD!! This is to remind people of the plight of these horses, & the monsters who kill them, right now, everyday, yesterday, 1-2 weeks ago, tomorrow, & the days, weeks, months & years from now, UNLESS we STOP them!! Slaughtering horses, for food(do any of you realize the toxic drugs that are in 99.9% of American horses??), is NOT the "answer", & will not solve any so-called "problems".
