What are your views on horse slaughter?
I've been having an argument with a large number of people on Youtube over this topic. I am pro slaughter providing that they're killed humanely as it does something about unwanted horses and would also have prevented less horses with poor conformation being created. However, because of my own personal views, I'm being hunted down and having huge arguments with several users over this. Getting back to the point, how do you feel about this and also Obama legalising slaughter in America? I'm so glad he did as now horses are not being transported to Mexico where there are no regulations on slaughter.

Horses are indeed being transported to Mexico and Canada as they always have been. What Obama has done is to allow refunding of inspections which had been defunded prior, forcing the slaughterhouses to close. The inspections will cost US taxpayers millions while we subsidize foreign owned slaughterhouses that provide... More

Really couldn't care less about the subject. But your name makes you a real hypocrite. So for that reason either change your name to ILoveKillingHorses or I will stand with the Youtubers.

Your name is perfect for your view ignore that other person (forgot to look at their name...)! You love horses so you hate to see them suffer. There are so many unwanted horses in he U.S. I totally agree with you! I didn't know Oboma made that legal in the U.S. when did that happen?

As much as I love horses I do agree it is necessary. Most horses that got to slaughter are not in good condition, sick and some have problems that cant be fixed. If we were to "save" all the horses that go to slaughter and they died anyway what would we do with them? There is so many unwanted horses out there now that... More

It's a necessary evil. All worldy things must unfortunately come to an end. Slaughter is necessary, but it sure as hell better be humane slaughter. ADD: agree 100% with mulewrangler.

Horse slaughter is in my opinion not humane or right.. I think it is cruel and should be legalized.. You can't really do anything to stop it, even if legalized it is still going to happen, because there are sick people, who will do anything for a buck or do, even if it means taking a young,healthy, beautiful creature'...

yes i am pro for the same reasons everyone else is. I was just wondering whether the people who make such a big huff against it are vegetarian or vegan? If they are neither... Well then they are hipocrites right?

I agree with almost everyone who answered this so far. I do find it necessary as long as it is HUMANE. What I don't like about slaughter, well that it is slaughtering. :/ If they could just put the horses down in a nice gentle manner, I would be just fine with it... More

I clearly hate Obama for what he has done to this country and i don't think slaughtering is necessary.... I think the only reason horses should be slaughtered is if they are to old and can't live right....

I believe it to be a necessary evil, I love horses so much and people don't understand why i agree with it, but i would rather a horse be slaughtered for food, than wasting away in pain in a field in the back end of no where. I think as long as it's humane than that's OK, it's the inhumane ways such as in mexico that i... More

The human race is more so overpopulated than horses are. So Obama should pass a law that sends "unwanted humans" to slaughter houses too! If you're worried about confirmation, that's like saying lets kill all the fat people in the world. Their lives are worth no more, nor more less, than yours or mine. As well as all... More
