I thought in the US people were kinder with animals. It appears to be the opposite.

Hold on a second Julie, this is not an anti horse racing or as you call it greed. This is not just about racehorses, all breeds are sent across both borders and the main ones are Americas own wild horses. I like many others on racing are appalled by this and we are sharing it in the Uk and Ireland. This as usual is an American problem. It dosent happen in Europe, because Thoroughbreds have a stamp on there passports exempting them from slaughter houses for human consumption. I was involved...

It dosent happen in Europe, because Thoroughbreds have a stamp on there passports exempting them from slaughter houses for human consumption. I was involved with the shutting down of the slaughter houses in Canada a few years ago. So why were they opened again. Yes horses need culling that is a fact and cannot be ignored....but the way it's done and the way they are transported needs to change. Stop attacking a certain sport...most all breeds of horses first day before you and I were born were bred for work and competition, the same as livestock is bred for milk and meat. If we didn't have any of these or farmers then how on earth does the world survive

I would encourage you to put this petition on change.org. Their petitions have been getting outstanding results in the USA. The comment here on Obama trying to bring back horse slaughter to the USA decides this indepedent voter on Mitt Romney, deplorable though some of his stances are. But Mrs R is a horsewoman, whose horse was ridden the the dressage competition of the Olympics.

The human actors are very cruel horse slaughter. Only for personal benefit a few rich people, they do it. I am a lover of animals strongly protested these actions...

We can't just sign this and still nothing changes! I'm sick of being made aware of this cruelty to these precious horses! Go to Mexico and slaughter those horrible slaughter house owners who does this! This is outrageous and I hope and pray this stops now!!!!!'
