Animals Angels Investigation at the Slaughter Horse Export Pens in Presidio, TX – April 30, 2012

Concerns remain

 The following abridged investigative report may be the best way of describing what we found in Presidio, TX and what took us there. It is important to remember that the situation at the export pens in Presidio is what is found everywhere along the horse slaughter pipeline. 

 In Shippensburg, PA or Presidio, TX; Butler, KY or Fairhaven, MI; Shelby, MT or Los Lunas, NM; Shipshewana, IN or Sugarcreek, OH– the evidence is stark and clear: Horse slaughter and transport on U.S. soil or not, means suffering and cruelty for horses long before they stand in the slaughter kill box.

 Important Background to Investigation

Dying Horse 1Photos provided to Animals’ Angels and documentation obtained by Public Information Request show horses dying in C4 export pens and carcasses dumped in a dry creek bed. Taken in August of 2011, with approximately 350 horses on the property, photos depict several horses down, struggling and dying. Many were extremely emaciated and/or had open, untreated wounds.

    Really makes me angry. Anyone involved in this type of neglect/abuse of any animal should be shot as far as I am concerned. We don’t need garbage humans like this inhabiting the planet. All they do is cause pain and suffering!

    What helps tremendously to raise awareness is to place ads in your local newspapers, on craigslist, and place flyers in every pet and feed store which allows it. Boarding facilities are great places to post pamphlets and flyers to bulletin boards too. Boycott any and all products and services which are pro slaughter, that is a very powerful tool – say goodbye to your Wranglers. Hit ’em where it counts!

    I have also heard that there are feedlots in that area with thousands of sick and crippled cattle dumped by the rodeo industry. Seems no one really cares be it horses or cattle until someone like Animals Angels brings these atrocities to the attention of the public.
    The disgusting sealing industry is almost dead in Canada so there is hope for other suffering animals it will just take a lot of dedicated people and unfortunately time.

    I am a Horse Lover Since childhood. Owned, Trained, Competed and Instructed. I understand death to end suffering or an accidental fatality.
    But sensless brutality being dealt to mustangs and the Equine in general is obsurd. Thanks to all of you, I only wish there was to Help.

    There is absolutely no reason for horses to suffer like this! There is no room for equine slaughterhouses in US….not now ….. not ever! My heartfelt thanks to Animals Angels for your kindness to these horses.
