There's a lack of USDA inspectors on the lines for more conventional meats as it is, so why should the public foot the bill for toxic horsemeat that should never enter the food chain? No to Horse Slaughter, period!

Well done, President Obama.

Horses have been such noble friends and servants of mankind for so many years, they deserve our kindness and protection in return.

This is a step in the right direction. We need awareness of abuse of many animals that do not deserve the lives they are forced to live. Noted and Thank You President Obama.

Thank you President Obama - you have gone up a notch in my estimation. Am truly grateful you have taken this stand - these precious horses don't deserve the cruelty inflicted upon them.

Good news indeed. Now to make those that breed their horses, responsible for every horse they produce. I read in the racing industry, 80% of the colts are sent to slaughter. I haven't heard what the numbers are for those that show horses. These are industries that we must shut down as they are the majority of those sending colts and horses to slaughter. We also need to get cattle off of our public lands and give those lands back to our wild horses, bison and wolves. All three animals helped build America and we owe it to their off spring to protect them.

This has to be the first thing I agree with of Obama. But he should not stop there.

Animal Abuse laws should not be just a State Law, it needs to be our Nations Law. With stricter laws jail time, loss of Drivers License for 5 years, if a teen delay 5 years giving them a drivers license, huge fines, probation, community service. We need to make a major impact on people like this. This will never stop until we hurt the person doing the abuse.

This should also include: Puppy mills are nothing but neglect, abuse, cruelty to the dogs. They are disgustingly dirty, over breeding, sickly and pass on diseases. Any dog that is born should not be meant to be breeding machines, its unhealthy for the off spring.

People like myself have written to our Gov't officials to enforce stricter laws, what is taking so long?? " It should not be just a state law, it needs to be a U.S. Law."
ALL ANIMALS, DOMESTIC, FARM, WILDLIFE.

Hey, maybe there is a tiny bit of brain in Obama's head. I am delighted he has continued the ban that is protecting the horses.

This is good news. Now, if we can get him to stop the BLM from doing helicopter roundups and holding wild horses and burros in holding pens, that would be really good news.

Cindy Miars is right. Now he has to stop the round ups in the irst place. Get the damn cattle off of the wild horse ranges and just leave them alone.

They can't be left alone, there are not enough things to kill them and keep them from overpopulating their range and destroying it for native wildlife. The BLM HAS to manage them.
