Reality of Horse Slaughter in Mexico Exposed: Unreal Cruelty Explained & How Horses Get to Mexico from the U.S.: What You Can Do to Stop it

I can write a bunch here on the hell endured by these beautiful beings, but this quote says it all:

“How are the animals slaughtered?

The method used to kill horses in most of the clandestine plants in Mexico, (all over the country) is by stabbing them in the spine until they are disabled. Then they are strung up from their hind legs and their throats are slit. Some others are killed by hitting them with a hammer on their heads, as well as donkeys and mules and most of them are skinned even if they are still alive. Some others are put into a box to immobilize them and stab them to death. The "puntilla" method appears to be standard at older slaughter plants throughout Mexico.

These intelligent and sensitive animals go through unspeakable suffering, even before their death.”

And, how can this be stopped?

What can Americans do if they want to stop horses from being driven to Canada and Mexico for slaughter?

“They have to press the American Congress and their Government to pass the S.311, it is vital that they write to their congressmen and ask him/her to support it to amend the Horse Protection Act to prohibit the shipping, transporting, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donation of horses and other equines to be slaughtered for human consumption, and for other purposes. Implement border control, inspection of all the trailers coming into and out of the country.

Control the propagation by neutering the animals.

-How do you respond to American ranchers and horse auctioneers who support horse slaughter?

I would ask them to stop selling the animals and to also control the propagation by neutering them.”

It appears that S. 311 is not active. Therefore, please visit http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/mexico-stop-the-horrific-cruelty/ to sign the petition to get the U.S. government active on this issue and get S. 311 or something like it to amend the “…Horse Protection Act to prohibit the shipping, transporting, moving, delivering, receiving, possessing, purchasing, selling, or donation of horses and other equines to be slaughtered for human consumption, and for other purposes.”
