I've requested one of my senators, Sen. Diane Feinstein of California, to co-sponsor the bill. The pictures were truly horrific; perhaps we can convince the French to stop eating horse meat, as a partial solution to this grotesque practice.

I have written my senators, Feinstein and Boxer, to co-sponsor the bill. Thanks for posting, Simone.

I agree with Penelope horses in Mexico are nothing, but this careless regard for animals is exercised to all animals, then this article is about the horses in USA. so I guess we are just as bad as Mexico. The truth is there are cruel people everywhere to all animals, and we know this very well in Care2. Thanks Penelope for bringing this up about the horses in Mexico, it is true but we must keep fighting for all animals, they don't have a nationality, they are all torture worldwide.

Horses were not meant to be slaughtered for food. They are our companions that would do anything for us that we ask of them. What is being done to them is just terribly horrendous and she be stopped immediately. Please prohibit the transport of our beautiful horses to a most cruel end. They did nothing to deserve this and i know one day the cowards responsible for this will pay.

how manunkind perfects the art of cruel
using other beings as entertainment tools
and when they no longer, a purpose serve
they are sent to a fate no creature deserves
man has lost his soul, his heart, his brain
and now our planet sinks
under the strain:(

If folks would stop breeding dogs we do not need more of... then less horses would have to be killed to feed them. So lets get rid of dog breeders and find homes for the dogs we already have. Oh dear.. I am sorry, greedy dog breeders only care about money and not dogs or horses..

Last night a friend who works for the SPCA and is finding homes for cats said now that they charge a hundred dollars maybe only serious folks will adopt.. I said really, because that dog sitting right in front of you was bought for 12 hundred dollars in a pet store and was cute as a puppy but two years later she is mine because she was no longer wanted.
Stop breeding dogs that have to be fed by killing other animals!

There are so many people who would love to have horses, but sadly so are the many regulations against where they can be stabled, the feed is expensive, and the average person knows nothing about training the Horse Whisperer way...horses are being bred for selfish for racing, money for the rodeos, money for show horses, and when they are no longer needed, they are sent off to slaughter. Humans are so greedy and use animals for their own profits that someday we will have turned the entire animal kingdom against us, if not already.
Horses are such lovely, devoted, intelligent, hard working, and loyal did they end up being pawns for humanity? It's a disgrace that we cannot find a solution for horses that people no longer want.
