Comment of the Day: Let Them Eat Horses (If That's More Humane)

Posted By on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 4:43 PM

Today's comment come in response to a post this morning about a convention in Las Vegas this week where ranchers, horse owners and animal-right activists are echoing the desires of some Missouri lawmakers to reintroduce horse processing plants to the United States.

Reader "Adam" writes:
I met some farmers over break who also said they thought that the situation was actually worse for horses now that there are no slaughter plants in the U.S. If this is true, then I think I would be OK with Missouri allowing it, provided that they actually had oversight, transparency, and good standards. But of course, you know that this is precisely what they will not do!
