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.

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....

He had no choice but to sign! It was to avoid a government shut down. The funding for inspections was a rider shoved into a giant Agriculture budget that had to be approved.

I signed this petition. That said, I think it would be useful to talk about ways of dealing with what snopes says is a excess population of horses. There is evidently a wave of abuse and neglect...is this true horse owners? I wonder if we should be talking non-profits set up to help get food to families who have hit hard times with horses. Hay relief.... Outlaw horse meat exporting...there are no laws to regulate how they are treated in transit when going to other countries...really? ...

Kelly, as a huge horse lover and horse owner, I have such incredibly mixed feelings about this. I heard a story about a year ago of a fellow who used to transport horses to Mexico for sale. You would not want to believe how they kill the horses there, it is so unbelievably inhumane. And the transporting them across the country is also extremely difficult on them and often inhumane. But the reality is we have too many unwanted horses, and with hay currently at $10 a bale, many people cannot...

But the reality is we have too many unwanted horses, and with hay currently at $10 a bale, many people cannot afford to feed them. I do not want to kill any living thing, but unless we step up to the plate and take care of these horses, they will continue to be exported to Mexico and Canada for slaughter. Yes to more non-profits to take care of these animals, and NO to exporting our animals out of the country for slaughter. We must also discuss responsible breeding, as with dogs, etc., that is often not the case. This is a complex issue with no easy answers. The welfare and dignity of these majestic creatures should be honored, and they should be treated as the intelligent animals and teachers that they are meant to be..

I don't want to see unnecessary slaughter of horses and ask this to be halted. However I am not going to blame Obama, or any one else I don't know for sure is behind it. Quite frankly I don't give a damn who is behind or why I just what it stopped. I think it is stupid and a waste of time to lay the blame at the door of someone because u don't like them. Good Lord, Obama has been blamed for global warming and I know there will be a bunch of people with absolutely no common sense that will...

Stay on track and stop senseless slaughter of beautiful creatures that are responsible for our livelihoods, transportation and corresponding over the years that brought us here. Plus I am an avid rider and I can feel every gorgeous muscle in their body ready to carry you anywhere at any speed if it means their own life. Don't know many people that would do that. Okay I am off my soap box now. Lets just get this stopped. Bev

horses should live and never be put down, even if they have a broken leg! sure, it costs a hell of a lot to wait for the bone to set, but we are an Extremist/Fundamental Christian nation and should bury horses just like people!
