In CA, Missouri is running a tourism ad on TV. That should be an easy destination to boycott and tell them why...can't visit a state that condones horse slaugter.

No matter what state you live in, everyone needs to remember that WE pay their salaries with our taxes! I recently signed the petition to stop Salazar (interior secretary) from pushing through his request for $42.5 million to purchase land in the midwest or east to create a "wild horse preserve" as well as doing something about the $22 mi it costs us to house the 36,000+ "store" wild horses in pens! As to moving them all east...didn't the government try that w/Native Americans..and found the climate sickened and killed many of there a pattern here or are they all just idiots?! Or perhaps they think WE are the idiots and can't stop them? It's time we start standing on OUR hind legs to stop this slaughter of animals everywhere - horses, bears, wolves, etc.

I do have to agree with the Nyack -- goodness that photos is special!!!

Wish they had cards on that to write the letters to all of these people!!! Or maybe they should have postcars of what the slaughter does -- that for sure would get someones attention....

Would be great if anyone knows a school that has a compassionate teacher that could print this out for the 5-6 graders to take action on for a class assignment. 50 states in USA would make such an impact coming from children and also to the President!!!

wish i had not opened that link will take a while to get that out of my brain.. but I guess that is the point of such things. Where do these folks come from who can do such things, I pity their families.. for evil such as this leaks out in other places.

Action taken, thanks Cher. Evidently the suffering of cows and pigs is not enough, some fight to add horses to the long list of animal abuse....

Noted,& action taken!! I also have been in touch with my state rep. on this issue,he also opposes horse slaughter.I live in MO., so this really hits TOO close to home!! He seems to think this bill will NOT pass,even though it's passed in other areas of either the house or senate?? My husband went to school with our district's state rep.,so we have emailed back & forth,&, talked by phone.I hope & PRAY he's right on his thoughts.

I think that in order to kill an animal you have to have a license. A license to say that by killing an animal for food you will replenish the population. Something needs to be done about animal abuse/slaughter.

It is a social taboo in the UK to eat horsemeat, although not illegal. It is used in making salami and other European sausages, along with other meats; imports of sausages to UK have sometimes been found to be not labelled as containing horsemeat. U.S will have imports from Italy - I hope it is labelled properly so that those who choose to can avoid horsemeat. The evil trade of old horses trucked live from Poland for slaughter in Italy continues. Please don't let horse slaughter revive in Missouri.. There's always someone who sees a way of exploiting our fellow species.
