Stop the shameful slaughter of horses! It is known by few that Canada does this dirty work. The USA ships live horses to Canada and Mexico for slaughter, because it is not legal to butcher these animals in the USA.
The horses are often wild mustangs and they are terrorized while being rounded up using helicopters. They are sorted and many bought by kill buyers to ship to our country. The animals are transported in overcrowded filth without food or water. The "processing" is horrific and inhumane. Some foals are shipped live to Japan for sushi-type food consumption.
Once you know this you have a responsibility to stop this. Our country should not be known for doing this dirty work. Please sign this petition and forward to your network via social media so we can stop this. You CAN make a difference.
Horses are sentient beings capable of every human emotion....including forgiveness. Please say NO to this cruelty. Unite as Canadians and mindful citizens from other countries who will not support this dirty work.
We will no longer tolerate the slaughter of horses in our country of Canada.
I will forward this petition to decision makers and animal rights organizations in Canada.

Thankyou everyone for your passionate concern. I have sent the petition to Canada’s prime ministers office. As a result I have been referred to two M Ps. Both have sent response letters.
They are conciliatory but not action oriented.
We need to push forward. I am open to your suggestions.
Best regards, jacqueline
