American horses are shipped to Canada and Mexico and are being killed for consumption in foreign countries. Horses are not raised as food animals in the United States and their unnecessary slaughter should be prohibited. Please contact your representative to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (S. 1176/H.R. 2966) which will prohibit horse slaughter from returning to the U.S. and end the export of American horses for slaughter.
