Totally disgusting and so wrong. Horses cannot be killed humanely--there''s just no way to do it. It's a horrifying scene. A disgrace period. Thx Judy

He says his operation would be overseen by the USDA...Why should US Taxpayers pick up the tab for this when USDA meat inspectors have been cut under the sequester for conventional meats? If they have USDA meat inspectors to spare, get them back to ensuring US Food Safety. None of my tax dollars going to line the pockets of this corporate welfare. No benefit to US citizens.

This is just so is it that mankind continues to find a way to slaughter every living thing around us for some kind of profit? Horses are not only relied on as workers for us but they are do we even consider slaughtering them? I truly hope his application is denied and that no horse slaughter plants are opened in the United States period!! Thanks for sharing Judy!

Noted. Time for the animal lovers to stop being wimps and start really fighting for these defenseless animals. Get busy at least signing the petitions.
