Those in Gallatin or Missouri who don't want
horse slaughter coming to their roadways and
backyards better get on the stick ! They announced
today that there are going to start killing horses
for human food in New Mexico and Iowa on August
5 unless a federal injunction against it succeeds
on August 2 on health/environmental grounds. Gallatin
won't be far behind ! Don't count on the feds to
protect your town better do it yourself like those
at Mountain Grove ! What sense does it make to
start killing horses and then be shut down three
months later by defunding of horsemeat inspectors ?
Who are they gonna sell all this meat to since it's
banned in Europe ? It should remind you of the sad
story of millions of bison left to rot out on the
plains, senseless slaughter. A few will make money,
while it lasts, Slaughterhouse Sue Wallis, Mindy
Patterson et alia. But the buzzards in this case
won't clean up the mess. You in Gallatin and Missouri will pay for it with your taxes : for
the slaughter and the clean up ahead ! By the way,
heavy overloaded horse trailers by kill buyers
cause many an accident and will ruin the roads.
Better speak up now! Horses can't and don't matter
as far as politicians see it. They can't vote.

Mules are. Most are fantastic animals as well.
Very friendly and sociable but great work animals.

Another useless fact: Donkeys keep away predators.
They are good to have on farms to protect the cattle,
pigs, chickens, and even the horses from coyote and
wolves.

It's time to start calling your Senators and Congress
men and women. Time to start signing petitions as well.
If enough ppl can get together this can be easily stopped.

These days?
About $50 dollars. lol

If everyone is so damn worried about us needing
meat why not use the actual "game" animals that
are hunted every year.
What's wrong w/bear, dear, wild boar meat?
There is no cause to slaughter horses for meat.

No investor in their right mind would even consider investing in this type of operation. The slaughter of horses WILL be banned either by legislation state or federal or it will be prohibited by the FSIS and FDA in the very near future. The presence of a horse slaughter plant in a community will bring crime, pollution and unwanted elements. The thought of several trucks a day filled with terrified screaming horses would turn the stomach of any decent person. The smell and pollution would be horrible. Special measures will have to be taken by any horse owner within 100 miles to protect their horses The reason that special measures have to be taken to ensure no stolen horses are killed is because horses ARE stolen and have been KILLED at previous plants. A few bucks and the stolen horse is sent to the front of the line-done no evidence- Statistics have shown that horse theft increased near previous plants. When California banned slaughter, horse theft went down 35%. So the folks of Gallatin should throw $laughter $ue Wallis out like we threw her out of Mountain Grove and Rockville.

right on, war horse ! Even if you don't care
about horses you should care about a town being
reduced to a Wasteland to profit an obese
profiteer from Recluse Wyoming. I helped invent
democracy, will you help defend it ? P.S. last
