This is a petition to stop horses being transported from the US for slaughter. They go thru inhuman treatment. Barely get any water or food. Left to suffer. Transported in double decker trailers unable to hold their heads up properly. They are forced to keep their heads down. many of them end up crippled. They way they are kill is horrible. Some with a 22 shot gun. They have to shoot them several times before they go down. Some of them are still alive and moving when they are ejected out of the kill shoot to be bled out. They are also stabbed in the spinal cord several times before they fall. Still well aware of what is happening to them. There are some that have been hit with the kill bullet up to 11 times before they are moved to be bled out and cut into pieces for people to eat. Not all of them are throw away horses. about 95% are perfectly good horses. Well broke, friendly, young, and even pregnant ones are sent their. Not by their owners either. many slaughter houses out bid families that can give them a loving home. This needs to end. There is 10 horses killed for ever one person that desperately wants one. Thousands of horses are shipped to Canada an Mexico each year for their meat. What these poor animals go thru is a case of animal abuse. This needs to be stopped. They are living, breathing beings. They do not deserve this.

Many mares are at these feed lots waiting to go to the slaughter in Canada. Allot of them foal still foals. They are beaten, starved, and neglected. I would like to stop the feed lots in the US...

Not all of them are throw away horses. most of them are good family horses, registered, broke, and all around sweet horses.
