Horse Slaughter: Let's get this ball rolling again!

So, 2008 was another fail, after the victories of 2007 in closing down the last equine slaughter houses in our country Congress did not get bills to keep our horses from being sent to Mexico and Canada for slaughter.

So, let 2009 be the year!

Representatives John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), House Judiciary Committee Chairman, and Representative Dan Burton (R-IN) have reintroduced H.R. 503 The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act.

Please urge your Representatives to sponsor this bill and to fight for it against those who still stand in opposition. If your Representative is one of those pro-slaughter types, please politely ask them to reconsider their position. If they have supported this bill in the past, thank them and ask them to continue to fight for these animals we owe so very much to.

An easy way to do this is to go to The Compassion Index where you can also check on your Reps' voting record.

Please, remember by next fall more of Saorsa's siblings, some literally her siblings, will be facing the feedlots and slaughter houses. Just as she could have. We have to stop this!
