Horse slaughters should be banned

DEAR EDITOR:

I am writing to you today because I believe horse slaughter is cruel and unnecessary.

I support passing the federal SAFE ACT to ban horse slaughter this year. The entire process of horse slaughter — from transport to stunning methods — is inherently cruel. Horses that wind up in the slaughter pipeline are usually purchased from unsuspecting owners by “kill-buyers” or industry middlemen who profit from selling the animals to foreign slaughterhouses.

Please help stop this and vote for the SAFE ACT to ban horse slaughter!
