This video is part of the Humane Society of the US’s effort to promote legislation to end horse slaughter.
WARNING: The images of horses being killed with captive bolts are extremely troubling and may not be appropriate for all viewers.
We need to ban horse slaughter and ban the transport of horses to other countries for slaughter. And then we need to make sure the horse-racing industries and others take responsibility for their horses – for their lifetime.
It is true that some horses become homeless for more legitimate, financial reasons. But too many come from horse racing and other entities that are simply turning over horses that are no longer of “value” to them.PACK MENTALITY BLOG: Compassion - teamed with Science and Logic
