Obama & Horse Meat

On November 18th, as the country was celebrating Thanksgiving, President Obama signed a law, allowing Americans to kill and eat horses. Essentially, one turkey was pardoned in the presence of worldwide media while in the shadows, buried under pages of fiscal regulation, millions of horses were sentenced to death.

Horse slaughter has been prohibited in the United States as funding for inspections of horses in transit and at slaughter houses was non-existent. This worked because the horse meat cannot be sold for human consumption without such inspections. The House version of the bill retained the de-funding language and the Senate version did not. The conference committee charged with reconciling the two opted to not include it. The result is that it is now legal to slaughter horses for humans to eat.

Notwithstanding that 70% of Americans oppose horse slaughter, that President Obama made a campaign promise to permanently ban horse slaughter and exports of horses for human consumption (horses can be sent to Mexico and Canada), that documentation of animal cruelty, slaughterhouse stench, fluid runoff and negative community impact exists, it is taxpayers that will bear the costs!

Wyoming state representative Sue Wallis and her pro-slaughter group estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants.


Bastard.

Re: Obama & Horse Meat

I am not sure very many people know about this. Once they do, 1) I doubt they will even want to eat horse meat! and 2) I think there might be boycotts or at least pressure on stores that try to carry it.

I am so pissed my eyes are crossed! Grrrrr

Re: Obama & Horse Meat

I'd like to say I'd never eat a horse but I ate a lot of things in Japan that I had no idea what they were made of and they were all delicious.

Re: Obama & Horse Meat

horse meat tastes great, didnt realise the states had a law against killling a horse for it's meat. seems strange to outlaw such a tasty source of food when there's such an over abundance of it there.
