Cutting Through the Propaganda

Help Stop the Spread of Disinformation about Horse Slaughter
By Laura Allen
Executive Director of Animal Law Coalition
Advisory Board Member Saving America's Horses

Pro-horse slaughter lobbyists are once again using state bills and resolutions to spread disinformation about this cruel, seedy practice. They have once again introduced a number of bills and resolutions in an effort to convince Congress to defeat the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, H.R. 503/S.B. 727 and also try to dupe the American people into believing that horse slaughter is humane or a solution for so-called unwanted horses.

Bills are active in Colorado, Kentucky, Idaho, Tennesse, Oklahoma, S Dakota, Minneso...


Remind IL Legislators of Cavel
By Laura Allen

Banning horse slaughter does not lead to an increase in abandoned or unwanted horses; that is a myth and studies have shown stories planted in the media about numbers of unwanted or abandoned horses are simply false. Horse slaughter actually enables overbreeding, creating a secondary or salvage market. Horse slaughter is driven by a demand for horse meat generally consumed as a pricey delicacy in some foreign countries. 92% or more of horses purchased and sent to slaughter are healthy. This is a for profit practice that should not be subsidized by Illinois taxpayers.

BLM's Final Solution for the Wild Horses and Burros
by John Holland and Valerie James Patton

Internal documents from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) shed light on the agency's motives and plans for the wild horses and burros.

Two reports issued by the BLM for internal use only, The Herd Management Option Plans from October 2008, and the Team Conference Calls Report from July-September 2008 contain astonishing proposals to manipulate the WFRHBA and NEPA, eliminate the wild horses and burros altogether from the wild, and until they can be euthanized or sold most likely for slaughter, sterilize them and place them in feedlots paid for by rescue organizations duped into thinking the animals are in private "preserves".  

BLM is the agency within the U.S. Department of Interior that is tasked with protecting the wild horses and burros pursuant to the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, 16 U.S.C. §1331 et seq. (WFRHBA) as free roaming animals in their historic herd areas and designated ranges. "All management activities are to be at the minimal feasible level." 16 U.S.C. Sec. 1333. Wild horses are not to be subject to "capture, "harassment" or "death". 16 U.S.C. Sec. 1331 (more)
