Tweetstorm to Suport the SAFE Act of 2013

Tweetstorm to Support the SAFE Act of 2013

Tweetstorm on Sept 26 to support the pending USA federal legislation against horse slaughter.

Approximately 170,000 horses were transported to slaughter in 2012. We want to STOP this trend. By ALL accounts (except the slaughterphiles’), these animals met horrendous ends.

Did you know:
The VAST majority of slaughtered horses are HEALTHY and with MANY years of life expectancy left?

That most racehorses end their racing career by age 4 and are rewarded with a trip to the slaughterhouse?

That Boyd Martin purchased his horse, Neville Bardos, the horse he rode in the 2012 Olympics, from a slaughter lot? (Neville Bardos was 3 years old)

That Neville Bardos, purchased in 2003 $850 is now worth over $1 MIL?

That horse slaughter is far from humane, and many horses are butchered while still alive?

That horse skulls from a Canadian slaughterhouse were found to have as many as 20 (thats TWENTY) holes from being shot with the bolt gun? The average was 5 or 6.

That Slaughterhouses in Mexico typically don’t bother with the bolt gun? They just cut the legs off at the knee and let the horses bleed out as they go through the butchering process.

That the humane society has stated the only humane way to put a horse down is through euthenasia? This is because a horse’s head can NOT be stablized and the bolt gun used on cattle isn’t long enough to reach an equine brain.

That statistics show the rate of reported horse thefts have a direct correllation with the proximity to a slaughter plant accepting horses?

That the European Union has banned the importation of American horsemeat for human consumption because of the drugs and treatments commonly administered to American Horses?

That the ONLY horseflesh in America deemed fit for human consumption is from our native wild horses and/or foals born to horses who received no antibiotics or wormers during their 11 month pregnancy?

This is ALL in addition to the environmental degradation and loss of property value directly resulting from horse slaughter.

Horse Slaughter is NOT something any of us want in our community, NOR do we want it in our country. Join the #Yes2SAFE TweetStorm to let your elected officials know you want them to co-sponsor and PASS HR1094/S541 and BAN horse slaughter AND the transportation of horses for slaughter in the United States.
