Prevent the Slaughter of America’s Remaining Wild Horses and our Domestic Equines too!
Horses are our trusted companions, a symbol of grace and beauty, have contributed greatly to our society throughout history.
However, American horses are being killed for the palates of overseas diners in Italy, France, Belgium, and Japan. Thousands of live horses are also transported across the border to Canada for slaughter. Show horses, racehorses, foals born as a “byproduct” of the Premarin© industry, wild horses, carriage horses, and family horses are victims of the horse slaughter industry. Thousands of horses are stolen every year for the horsemeat trade.
Urge your federal legislators to cosponsor the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (HR 503/S 1915). Representatives Sweeney (R-NY), Spratt (D-SC), and Whitfield (R-KY) and Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Mary Landrieu (D- LA) are leading the way to stop the slaughter.
