Horses are not raised for food…stop horse slaughter before it begins

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, Governor Rick Scott, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Stop the slaughter of horses in the state of Florida before it begins. Stop the slaughter of horses in this country before it begins again.
There are currently 207 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

We do not raise horses as a food source in this country. They are treated with vaccines, de-wormer's, and pain killers that make their meat toxic to humans. It says it right on the bottle next to the skull and crossbones.

Because of the horse's instincts, a humane slaughter is impossible. Many are just stunned only to wake up while they are bleeding to death from having their throat cut.

Over breeding, like puppy mills, has to stop. The responsibility of backyard breeders and national organizations like the AQHA is to curb the overpopulation created while they are looking for that one animal that will win them a $1.98 blue ribbon. Those that don't meet the grade are tossed out with the garbage.

Please sign the petition to stop the slaughtering of horses here in Florida. There is a law on the books but it is not strong enough language to prevent slaughterhouses from being built and sanctioned by the USDA. We cannot allow this to happen in the Sunshine State.

Let our government representatives know that this barbaric activity will not be allowed in our state.
