Over 150,000 young, healthy, pregnant, and senior ponies, donkeys and horses are sent for slaughter over our boarders to Mexico and Canada. They are slaughtered mainly for human consumption in other countries. Yes, people eat horses! With horse slaughter illegal in the United States, they are transported hundreds of miles–days at a time without food, water or rest–and slaughtered in the most inhumane way imaginable.
There is a lot of information about the slaughter of horses. Below are links to articles and organizations that we like or stand behind, or articles with more information on slaughter in general. (Warning: some of these articles contain graphic photos and information.)
