Americans are still largely uninformed about the attrocities that befall our American Horses today. Once informed 80% of America is against the vial Horse Slaughter industry. Unfortunately our government is largely bought and paid for by large lobbying organizations like the Big AG industry. Late 2011, three lawmakers in Washington, D.C. (Rep. Kingston, Sen. Blunt and Sen. Kohl), legalized Horse Slaughter once again in the U.S. by removing language from an Agriculture Appropriations bill.
This video is a recent news segment as a result of the Summit of the Live Horse Press Conference, in Oklahoma City on April 3rd.
This aggriculture Appropriations bill had previously prohibited federal funds from being spent to inspect horse slaughter plants since 2007 when the last of the U.S. horse slaughter plants closed their doors. President Obama signed the new bill into law and in doing so ignited a heated anti/pro-horse debate, which crosses all of the socio-economic demographics of the U.S. This video is newfootage interviewing Simone Netherlands as a result of the Summit of the Live Horse Press Conference in Oklahoma City April 3rd. Its shows Representative Jerry Peak stating that he has cared for more horses than the speakers of the Summit of the live Horse have. This is a ridiculous statement for a legislator and we are rather sure, that even though he may have bought and sold many horses in his life, he has never cared for any of them.
This years Summit of the (dead) Horse was canceled by the horse eaters, but that does not mean they will stop strategyzing on how to increase the demand for horse meat, how to slaughter our wild horses and how to open new horse slaughter plants in America. They continue to try and convince people, the horse industry plus themselves that horse slaughter is humane! This is last years footage of the Summit of the dead horse and a very informative piece by Award winning reporter George Knapp.

This is in London, at the American Embassy, on the same day as the protests in L.A. and Washington D.C. and Las Vegas. She is the writer and singer of the great wild horse song: I want to be free. (It is the song you hear in the video of the protest.) Please buy her song on iTunes.
Thank you Maria!!
This video is a good explanation of the simple facts and numbers. If you look at the numbers, the outrageousness of the BLM policies become very clear. Cattle ranchers and mining interests continue to overtake our public lands and all wildlife and wild horses are the innocent victims. Who can take anyone serious when they claim that 25,000 wild horses are causing deterioration to the public lands when there are over 8 million cattle grazing on that same land? Look at the numbers and then tell me, are you outraged? To become an internet activist for horses send an email to Respect4Horses
