They Slaughter Horses, Don't They?

Posted: 05/13/2005 2:26 pm

Here is something you might want to know:

Late last year, Congress did away with a 34 year old regulation banning the government from selling any of the 37,000 wild horses running free across America's western plains. Since the new rule was adopted, the Bureau of Land Management has sold over a thousand horses to private parties. At least 41 of them have been slaughtered and turned into dog food.

Look here to learn more about this horrible state of affairs. And here if you want to become a part of the fight to repeal this odious law.

Galloping into the winner's circle on this issue: Ford Motor Company, which recently stepped in at the last minute and saved 52 horses from being killed.

Now that's a better idea.
