A petition to stop the export of US horses and their senseless, barbaric slaughter.
Dear Representative Conyers:
We, the undersigned, thank you from our hearts for introducing H.R. 503, the Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act, and your time in reading this letter.
As you are aware, nearly 400,000 U.S. horses were exported for slaughter. On the way to the slaugher houses, they are made to endure tremendous suffering and many die before reaching the slaughter house. Perhaps they are the fortunate ones because the fate that awaits those who survive is barbaric, cruel, inhumane. It reflects the worst in human nature. Most are butchered while still alive! This must stop! Please make certain that H.R. 503 passes in this year's Congress.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
