antibiotics and steroids if they are racehorses. Parasites if they are from the range. Every sort of foodborne bacteria, given the history of the operation of this place in the past. Perhaps something worse coming in from their carcass piles. It will take a lot of salt, pepper and garlic powder to disguise all that.

Agree. CD might as well grind up all the medications from a 1000 people and let him use it as seasoning. NM does not need to be the center of bad negative attention as he strives to endorse and portray.

@truth, from which you could not possible be
further from ! It is a complete lie that wild horses
are overpopulating, one promoted by the very same
pro-slaughter crowd who are overbreeding race and
quarter horses out of profit motives. There are
indeed human predators, those who keep pushing for
horse slaughter and they won't keep the horse
population "in check" either. In fact, resuming
horse slaughter will make overbreeding more
profitable to them because the taxpayer will pay
for the slaughter of the
the nine out of ten horses the commercial breeders
don't want because they wash out on the
race track or as "performance" horses. The whole
myth of starving horses being caused by the absence
of slaughter plants in the United States is the
biggest attempted scam on the American taxpayer
perpetrated of late - and there have been many !
The high price of hay causing horses starving has
to do with drought, Nature, absolutely nothing to
do with slaughter plants. This is B.S. propaganda
by those who are already subsidized with tax
money: commericial horse breeders trying to make
you pay more to open slaughterplants so that they
won't have to take care of the "surplus horses"
whose overbreeding they cause in the first place !
They are laughing up their sleeve all the while
they convince naive people that they want you to
pour more tax money into a problem they create in
the first place because of corporate greed !
SSHANE, you have no idea how close you are to the truth! Did you know that Roswell is right down the road from Ruidoso Downs, rated the most dangerous track in the nation? Did you know the Cartel breeds and stalls horses in Roswell? Did you know that Valley Meat is on the back 40 of a Race track Veterinarian.? You are absolutely right that this is merely a dumping ground for drugged and doped race horses. I am sure you know that phenobuterol and other drugs are banned for use in animals for human consumption... Did you know Valley Meat is really owned by Japanese businessman, Ryoichi Okubo and Kujukyumi ltd..

who said the will be free range horses you are wrong. They will be race horses,family horses and quarter horses. Once the USDA approves the slaughter ,it will be in meat at Walmart just like in Europe . It will be in school lunch meat. Oh, the equine drugs? USDA only requires inspection of 4 out of every hundred horses. Can you spell aplastic anemia, blood dysplacia?

proof that God/Nature doesn't want you to eat horses:
90% of horses bound for slaughter are abandoned not by individual owners but are discarded by the race horse and quarter horse breeders who believe they will never make them money. These as Susan Carter points out correctly above, have no market now in Europe because of the cancer-causing drug residues in their system that never really leave it entirely. 10% of the horses bound for slaughter are sold at auction by individual owners or illegally to kill buyers from wild horse holding facilites (viz. concentration camps mismanaged by the B.L.M.) These are not drug free either of course if they have ever been given even one injection of Bute. Now science has revealed that many horses bound for slaughter have tested positive for toxoplasmosis, which can be fatal in adults and causes serious birth defects if horse meat is eaten by women who are pregnant. Since this horse meat is bound for Japan, where it is eaten raw, the U.S. would be exporting biological warfare as well as chemical warfare on other countries. That means there is no market for horse meat from the United States once Japan catches us like Europe. So what is the point of starting up these horse plants in Roswell and Gallatin Missouri ? Cruelty for cruelty's sake ? They are Death Camps not "businesses" so they should pretending otherwise - and so should the taxpayers forced to pay for inspectors at them - at a rate of $400,000 a year per plant !

doesn't hide the truth that New Mexico has thousands of free ranges horses starving to death in the wild and further eroding and decimating the land. Better they be slaughtered and eaten than starving to death. You are redirecting your argument by using race horses, which you know is a outright LIE.

if you have thousands of free range horses starving to death in the wild - a claim which is heresay as you cite no scientific proof - then make the B.L.M feed them as is their tax supported responsibility ! This is all the usual road apples dumped by horse slaughter fanatics. Every one knows quite well that cattle grazing leased on the cheap does a thousand times more damage to public land as they greatly outnumber the wild horses ! But since you represent cattle interests subsidized by taxpayers you won't mention that right ? Hypocrisy ! Suddenly those always hostile to environmentalists are wringing their hands over the environment. Hypocrisy !Suddenly those who could not care less about suffering animals are suggesting that the only solution to overpopulation is slaughtering and sending them off to poison people in other countries ! What next, shall we can cats and dogs since they are overpopulating them and send them to China and the Phillipines ?
It is you who are responsible for any real or invented problem with "unwanted" horses. It is the commercial horse breeders who will continue to cause this problem by overbreeding. And it is the B.L.M round ups which have created the false problem of "what to do with the horses"? What to do with them ? Let them go again !
They were fending for themselves quite fine and have been for a long time until they were "in the way" of cattle overgrazing interests, mining for shale oil and fracking, etc.

The aliens returned to pick up their old spacecraft. They noticed that the town was not doing well despite the fact that they had left them with a good tourist trade for UFO seekers long ago. They saw the new plant proposed for horse slaughter on the very sight of a failed cattle slaughter plant that also was repeatedly shut down for environmental violations. "What's that?" Starman asked a local. "Oh they're trying to get a horse slaughter place started up to feed wealthy Japanese overseas." "You humans eat horses ?" asked Starman. "Well Americans don't but other people in other countries do," replied the local. "Do horses eat people ?" asked the bewildered Starman. "No, horses are our friends and helped us for many thousands of years in our work loyally," admitted the local. "Yet you now want to kill them and sell them even though you don't eat them yourselves?" asked the even more baffled Starman.
"I think we made a mistake a long time ago," Starman said to the other alien. "We should have kept the horses and got rid of the human race. They are far too savage to ever become civilized !"

And I know a few dozen mules that would love to meet you and see how loud an empty head like yours would ring when they kicked it ! I bet you could hear it clearly on the moon, as hollow as brass, all sound and fury signifying nothing. Then they could leave you for your imaginary bears to devour. Yumm, bears I'm told like meat with no taint of human intelligence clinging to it. You'd be perfect !

is more humane, letting the horses starve to death, a long slow agonizing process, or putting them down quickly and also providing food for the hungry at the same time? Of course their rotting carcasses do provide food for coyote's, wolves, bears and various other carnivores so what's a little agony when they starve to death, right?
