It is the countries who "ALLOW", the purchase of horse meat for human consumption...that needs to be stopped. If there were not a demand for it, it wouldn't be such a problem. Good Lord, it's been going on in Europe for a long time. If Canada & Mexico would make it illegal, North America might...be free of this insanity. It's not over breeding. It's not anything other than a greedy business. Nearly every race track has an adoption program for retired race horses. It truly is, all about...

Convince people not to eat it and then there will not be a market for it! Don't blame it on over breeding. Blame it on those who consume it.

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

It's horrible these poor horses suffer. Everyone, please go on this website and google translate it it's german translate it to english. Look at what these dogs go through. I'm really young but i can see what something suffers. Everytime i think of these poor animals i have to cry. My two dogs Bertha and Bruci died too. It's horrible. R.I.P Bertha and Bruci you are still the best dogs and they will look upon me every step on my way.

I don't know honestly I guess that if enough people sign it, authorities and govs might bring in a law against this (if there isn't one for it already) people will actually stop hopefully...

this is an absolute disgrace of the most wonderful animals we have,as far as i,m concerned no horse should be used as dogfood or food for anything ,most horses can be useful and ridden till aged then put to pasture,not to be treated like this,use animals that are specifically bred for slaughter sheep/cattle but kill them quick and humanely,every creature deserves this.
