Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Canadian Horse Slaughter *Graphic*

From: Beth in Illinois Fighting to End Horse Slaughter (www.​myspace.​​com/​66851365)




In late February 2010, the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition (CHDC) received hidden camera footage of horse slaughter practices at Quebecs Viandes Richelieu and Albertas Bouvry Exports - the latter known as North Americas largest exporter of horsemeat.

The CHDC has asked a panel of veterinarians, the BC SPCA and the World Society for the Protection of Animals to review the footage, which contains numerous instances of improper stunning and horses showing signs of returning consciousness.

Early audit results of the footage show automatic failures of both facilities.

As there are only two government-​​​approved methods of stunning horses in Canada - captive bolt gun and rifle - and both methods have been shown to cause prolonged suffering in numerous horses, we conclude that these animals cannot be slaughtered humanely in todays slaughterhouse assembly lines.

The CHDC therefore calls for the immediate closure of Canadas horse slaughter plants.

That's our Persephone! We do horses, as well as pigs and chickens.
...and cows and cats and dogs.... and all living, suffering creatures.

I couldn't watch the videos myself. I am already haunted by other things I've seen/heard. Sometimes for my own mental well being I need to step back a bit. I wish I could do more for all animals. We live is such a wicked, wicked world. Soon I hope to be moving out of the city of Pittsburgh to the country in South Carolina with my brother. He & his wife have rescued a pack of dogs.
