This is so awful. One of the proposed horse slaughterhouses will open soon in my home state of New Mexico - down south, in Roswell. The owner of Valley Meat Co. brushed off the opposition to his plant, saying "protein is protein," which made me so incredibly sad and angry, but what can we protesters do? The USDA is not hearing our outrage and will approve the plant. The slaughter of innocent horses will commence whether we agree or not, whether we as Americans buy the cruel product or not. There is a market somewhere for the flesh of these tortured creatures - Europe, probably - and profit margins speak more loudly than all our outraged voices combined. My tears flow ...

I agree - sad and angry! I can't understand why horse meat is necessary. It's 2013, we don't need to slaughter animals to survive. There are other dietary options. These people just want an excuse to make money on cheaply obtained meat (wild horses).

In reality...the slaughtering of any animal is wrong........but mankind as hunted for meat. etc since recorded time.....Many have been desensitized re; eating animals over hundreds of years.......This seems to be a personal choice and , therefore, in this instance, all I can write is that I do not agree with what you say, but will defend your right to say it......(paraphrased somewhat.........)

Just because the plant is ready and someone writes an article doesn't make it so. Don't give up. Sign every petition you can find. Google "petition against horse slaughter" Believe me it's not over until it's over.

Sad for the horses and a bit weird, when nobody wants to eat horse meat. But in Europe itīs common to do.
