I am trying to help end horse slaughter in Canada. Please read this note as its very important. Horses are shipped from all over Canada and the USA to one of seven slaughter houses in Canada. While on the journey they are not provided with food or water and they are in unsafe, over crowded trailers. The conditions they are kept in while at the slaughter houses are equally terrible often again with little to no food or water. When the time to slaughter them is here, they are stunned with a bolt that was originally made for cows, (horses are a lot harder to stun as they are skittish and head shy), often they are still concious while being hoisted up by their back legs and cut open to bleed out (again often while still awake). All this just to ship the meat overseas to be eaten in fancy resturants.

**The slaughter houses in Mexico are even worse as instead of a stun gun they just stab the horses spinal cord repeatedly with a knife.

Please there are things you can do to help, youtube horse slaughter for yourself and see exactly what im talking about (please be warned VERY GRAPHIC)

I started to write a long rambling post about these practices and then erased it all. I guess all I have to say is this inhumane treatment of the horses, and the wild horse round-ups going on make me sick to my stomach. Dear God, please help them.
