Yeah, Obama signed the ag bill that allowed slaughter (under duress), BUT give credit where credit is due - It was Sen. Roy Blunt (R- MO), Rep. Jack Kingston (R- GA) and Rep. Herb Kohl (D- WI) who, in a secret backroom deal, went against Congress and 80% of the American people to remove language that defunded horsemeat inspections. These three men are responsible and should be held accountable. They are traitors to Democracy.

Obama was forced to sign the bill or shut down the government. Y'all remember that time when the GOP wouldn't even give Obama the time of day. Don't even get me started on the Tea Party!

Hope I don't start another fight here....yes, Blunt, Kingston & Kohl are underhanded traitors BUT I can't help but wonder why a man who, while senator, supported Horse Slaughter Prevention Act and in his 2008 campaign promised to protect horses, would appoint a wild horse murderer like Salazar. I know I've become skeptical....but wondering what the hidden agenda actually is.

Barbara Leonard wild horses are a very small concern to the President with economic collapse and wars going on. Salazar is a Democrat and he has snowed the President with his good old boy rhetoric and unfortunately he is backed by pretty much every politician in the West. The good old boy network is alive and well and just as oilmen dominate Texas politics cattlemen dominate in the west. IF they don't benefit from running cattle on public land at taxpayer expense then their constituents do....

My family was in ranching in New Mexico starting in 1914. We never used goverment land and we also NEVER got any money from goverment to use on ranch. I am sure a lot did but it sounds as if you are saying all ranchers are doing it.

Animals have NOTHING to do with ANY of those flu's you mentiones...THEY ARE MANMADE AND MAN CONTROLLED to CAUSE PANDEMICS WORLD WIDE. THAT is so they can "PROTECT" us with vaccines UNTESTED because they JUST MADE THEM, or no good but are from "updated" OLD vaccines, so that WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE is put into that mix for possible CONTROL or at the least....tracking us!!!

HOW DO YOU KNOW--when you are unconscious, or when they take that newborn "for the usual tests and shots"....have you ANY IDEA WHAT THAT ENTAILS??? Don't for one minute think that the animal kingdom will be able to get back at the humans who are bound and determined to destroy them...It will be all WE can do to save ourselves from those with that ability and power to shut them down BEFORE they succeed.

Lori Gagne, I recently began watching a documentry about the slaughtering of these beautiful animals, I was appauld at how it was done. The cruelty and disregard made me so angry and sad, iIbegan to cry and could not watch the remainder of the show. This must be STOPPED!! I hope our voices will be heard LOUD AND CLEAR and our feelings be taken into consideration....

This is so inhumane. I want the U.S. to be a humane country, not one where animals are treated like they are in some countries I read about. I hope everyone that has a heart will sign this petition to stop abuse of all animals! Inhumanity defines who a people are. I pray that America is a HUMANE and compassionate country to animals. Stop horse slaughter houses!

I thank God for people like my sister Teresa, who saved two horses from the dog pound that no one wanted and euthanasia was their only future because one was burned in a fire and the other had been abused and was dangerous because she was afraid of people. My sister Teresa adopted BOTH of them and gave them a loving home and has taken care of them both, even progressively taming the abused horse, that she has named Honey Bear and the other one is Smokey.

I've been a horsewoman for many years now and quite honestly Ive seen much more horrible treatment given to animals like cows, chickens, pigs and turkeys. any rancher will agree that this video really isn't that bad. the gate is not crushing the horses, it's simply bracing against their forehand as they try to go thru and bc of the direction the gate closes/opens in, if the gate is closing they'll feel pressure from said gate and immediately back away. I in no means am supporting horse...

I in no means am supporting horse slaughter, I'm simply bringing to attention that fact that this video is not depicting massive animal abuse. Any horse, whether meant for slaughter or a national title-winning show horse will receive the same treatment when having it's shoes removed, that is an extremely common way to remove shoes. I I have very mixed feelings about this video bc I agree with it's message but it fails at HONESTLY portraying the message it's trying to get across.

ALTHOUGH A COW AND A HORSE ARE BOTH LIVING, BREATHING ANIMALS, BOTH WITH CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEMS AND THE ABILITY TO FEEL PAIN, THE HORSE IS THE CREATURE THAT WILL "WHINNY " TO YOU, AND COME AT A GALLOP, WHEN THEY HEAR THEIR NAME CALLED BY A "HUMAN FREIND". WE MAKE CLOSE AND DEEP ATTATCHMENTS, MANY LASTING DECADES, WITH OUR EQUINE PARTNERS.AND YET, WE TOTALLY BETRAY THAT LOYALTY WHEN WE CANNOT OR WILL NOT ALLOW THEM A QUIET RETIREMENT- AND CANNOT STOP THIS BARBARIC PRACTICE OF SLAUGHTER... TO ANIMALS THAT GAVE US THEIR "ALL".
