Few Americans are aware that their country's horses are being exported and slaughtered abroad - often in appalling conditions - to supply European taste for a meat that's shunned at home.

Oh my God, this is just heartbreaking - these poor animals must have been so terrified - what the hell are we doing to our animals - this has floored me, the barbaric and savage cruelty we inflict upon animals that cannot defend themselves is just unforgivable. 99% of so called humans are heartless bastards, rubbishes, scum of the earth, I could go on forever and I cannot even begin to tell you how much I despise, detest and hate them. They are worse than savages. When I have had to put one of my beloved pets down I have stood next to them, crying my eyes out, hugging them and kissing them so that I know when they took their last breath they were secure in knowing that I was there, that I loved them with my life. Who did these poor terrified horses have, no one, dear God, I could just sit and cry my eyes out because there is nothing I can do to help them.

I'd like to see major newspapers and magazines print this info. I'd like to see it widely circulated. It is horrendous but few people are aware.
