this is beyond gross. horses are delicate, beautiful creatures that were not created to be eaten by humans.
what's next? cannibalism?

When was this proposed? When was it voted on? WHO decided this, and
WHEN was the public notified to support or oppose? WHO made this decision, we all should want to know.

Don't believe this.

"The Weekly World News was a largely fictional news tabloid published in the United States from 1979 to 2007, renowned for its outlandish cover stories often based on supernatural or paranormal themes and an approach to news that verged on the satirical. Its characteristic black-and-white covers have become pop-culture images widely used in the arts. It continues to exist as a website." ~ Wikipedia

Pam + Fran, unfortunately the story is true! Just Google the topic. I just posted one article but there are many from different sources. Iím not one to publish fake stories. Sale in the US is small, but it is available. Here is another story published by The Humane Society of the United States:
