Hope Roswell is ready for an environmental catastrophe... Go to the internet and google " Kaufman texas horse slaughter plant.' Are you ready for blood coming up in your bathtubs and sink? ready for horrendous smells and flies? Get ready.

There is no market for horse meat. the eu bans export and Americans don't want bute, de wormer infused meat. it takes 45 min. to beat one horse to death. the bolt doesn't work bk of the placement of the brain. we will not subsidize greed and violence. go home de los santos.

No way! Horse slaughter is a way to put poison into the human food chain. Ok Roswell, you will be bankrupted by the cleanup of remains and the blood contamination of your water table. Your town will have the stench of dead horses. Ugh! Goodbye property values. My advice to citizens is sell out now before the housing crash.

Look at de los santos's track record already at that location. He was shut down as a beef operation. How could Roswell allow him to open again. He is a felon , who lied on his applications. With a boss like this, you can bet his empoyees will be just like him. Watch the bones pile up and the blood run in the ditches. If you listen you will hear the screams of the horses.
