"This is a form of persecution by the powerful against the economically disadvantaged, and also against our domestic animals, many of whom rely on horse-meat byproducts."
This is a bunch of horse manure! Horses in the US have been slaughtered needlessly under brutal conditions. You can watch this "humane" treatment of horses, and learn the truth about what REALLY is happening... by visiting
Most of the horses slaughtered in the US were destined to end up on the dinner plates of the wealthy as a gormet treat.
Horses have historically have been our partners, working side by side with us, through battle, on farms, and as companion animals. They need protection, not slaughter.
To Mr Charles F. Morris, get your facts straight and please stop spreading these vicious rumors.

NO HORSE EATING!!!
#188 Sep 14, 2009
I am a horse owner and always will be. I'm also just in high school. My mom knew someone that tried to rescue horses but it didn't work. We ended up with some of the horses and they were so emaciated that their ribs could be counted from feet away. Their worms were so bad that we would have to worm them 3 times the amount needed. Some of the horses had diseases and others had hoof, teeth, or hair problems.
Until recently I thought horse slaughter was very bad but now after seeing all the neglected horses I think it is good to slaughter some. The "young healthy" horses probably had a bad life and if not slaughtered might have been going to a case of neglect. The people that "rescue" horses sometimes have to many and have no money these horses start to get diseases and suffer. Why shouldn't these horses get slaughtered to stop the suffering?
I admit I have eaten horse its an okay meat a little like beef. I say that horse slaughter is okay for horses that don't have a loving home. The people that think its wrong haven't seen suffering horses and need to think about it instead of freaking out. Especially people that own horses they should understand. So I totally agree with horse slaughter.

Association of phenylbutazone usage with horses bought for slaughter: A public health risk
Nicholas Dodman, Nicolas Blondeau, Ann M. Marini
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - prohibited as well Phenylbutazone, known as "bute," is a veterinary drug only label-approved by the Food & Drug Administration for use by veterinarians in dogs and horses. It has been associated with debilitating conditions in humans and it is absolutely not permitted for use in food-producing animals. USDA/FSIS has conducted a special project to for this drug in selected bovine slaughter plants under federal inspection. An earlier pilot project by FSIS found traces less than 3% of the livestock selected for testing, sufficient cause for this special project. There is no tolerance for this drug in food-producing livestock, and they and their by-products are condemned when it is detected. Dairy producers must not use this drug in food-producing livestock and if it is found, those producers will be subject to FDA investigation and possible prosecution.
Horse Owner Survey Shows NSAID Use Trends
by: Edited Press Release
April 30 2009, Article # 14073
In a recent survey, 96% of respondents said they used nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to control the joint pain and
inflammation in horses, and 82% administer them without always
consulting their veterinarian. More than 1,400 horse owners and trainers
were surveyed to better understand attitudes toward NSAIDs, in a project
sponsored by Merial, the maker of Equioxx (firocoxib).
99 percent of horses that started in California last year raced on bute, according to Daily Racing Form. Bute is banned in the United States and Canada for horses intended for the food chain. Thats a permanent ban.
Are horses used to make pet food?
Horses are not raised for food in the United States so they are not generally used in commercial pet foods.
