Governor Martinez, you have the power to prevent horse slaughter in the United States. At this pivotal moment, we urge you to make an executive order that would stop the horse slaughtering operation that is scheduled to open in New Mexico this April. The slaughterhouse, Valley Meat Co. is currently under investigation for animal cruelty and should not be allowed to enter the international horsemeat market.
Horse slaughter was banned in 2006 and should not be reenacted. If this operation opens in New Mexico it will set a precedent for slaughterhouses to open in other areas of the country resulting in hundreds of thousands of horse deaths per year. The U.S. should not participate in the production of horsemeat for international sale.
We urge you to ban the formation of horse slaughtering operations in New Mexico now.

The U.S. banned horse-slaughtering operations in 2006. However, that year three slaughterhouses in the U.S. were responsible for killing 104,899 horses. 
An employee at the Valley Meat Co. was recently caught on video insulting animal rights activists before shooting a horse in the head with a rifle. This type of operation should not be trusted to treat any kind of animal humanely.
There is not a market for horse slaughter in the U.S. because theses animals are seen as prestigious and elegant animals within our culture. Animal – rights activists brought upon the 2006 ban, and we will not stop until we are sure that American horses are protected. Please support these efforts by signing the petition!
