Petition: Stop the SLAUGHTER of Wild Horses in Alberta!

Why This Is Important

Horses have a right to live and be free. They should be afforded the rights and protection of other species of wildlife and not considered a nuisance or a pest. As with the grizzly bear, moose, deer, elk or mountain sheep they are an important part of the overall ecological make-up of this unique area of Alberta.
The horse became an important animal in helping settle and open this province. Our entire western culture and heritage focuses around horses and the chores that they performed for us. The horse broke the land, hauled produce and helped harvest our forests and crops. They helped the ranchers in the operation of their cattle ranches. They were an important part of the everyday life of the early Albertans being the only means of transportation.
As late as 1985 there were estimated to be over a thousand free roaming wild horses in the foothills of Alberta. Today less than 300 hundred remain in Alberta and those are being killed as well.

    There is no way this should be happening in Alberta or anywhere else. Especially in developed countries like Canada and the US we have an obligation to do BETTER than this. NEeds to cease immediately.

    Humans should be slaughterd before animals any day. We are a sick and disgusting race.

  3. How dare they even think of killing one of the most beautiful creatures on this earth. If they feel it is ok then they are sick!. Stop killing the beauty in this world, we have so little left that man has not already destroyed. I am totally against the killing of horses I think it is cruel and unnecessary especially in North America.

    The Bible forbids cruelty to animals. The Talmud requires that when the devout see a lovely animals they must recite a special blessing: “Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who created beautiful animals in His world.” (Berachot 9). God himself instructs
    that we are to do no harm or injury on HIs holy mountain (earth). Christ when He threw the money changers out of the temple also threw out those who sold animals for sacrifice and profit.
    The law is eternal “Thou shalt not kill” — the nations that refuse to obey God’s ordinances will one day suffer for the crimes that they have imposed on animals and on the environment.

    THE HUMANS THINK THEY ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND ANIMAL LIFE, WELL THEY ARE NOT. LIFE IS LIFE IN WHAT EVER FORM ITS IN. WE ARE ALL FROM THE SAME LIFE FORCE AND DESERVE RESPECT AND TO RESPECT. CRUELTY TO ANY LIVING THING IS WRONG ! JUST BECAUSE THE HUMAN IS SUPERIOR IN THAT THEY SPEAK DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO TAKE WILD LIFE (HORSES AND DONKEYS ) AND SEND THEM TO SLAUGHTER FOR FOOD . THIS IS MORALY WRONG AND ACTUALLY A VERY SICK POOR EXCUSE TO MAKE MONEY. THE HUMAN HAS A LOT TO LEARN AND A LONG WAY TO GO TO GROW SPIRITUALLY IT SEEMS ,WHEN IT COMES TO ANIMALS.
