CHDC Anti-Slaughter Flyer Updated To Include YTD Stats for 2014

Please click here to download our latest flyer showing the numbers of horses slaughtered in Canada Year-To-Date 2014.  For our French speaking supporters here’s the French version.

Please also continue to contact your Member of Parliament and ask that they support anti-slaughter legislation and if they would consider introducing legislation themselves that would prohibit the slaughter and live export of horses for slaughter in Canada.

  1. And for the record whoever writes Horse Racing Wrongs blog are illiterate. They actually eradicate and purposely do not allow intelligent comments on what is fact. I would not have them as any type of link. They encourage misinformation for their own agenda. As a horse woman who loves the horses being apart of the horse racing industry although now a retired groom, I’ve also written against slaughter as you very well know.

    We are not vultures as Horse Racing Wrongs portrays us all. They took one of my blogs that I had been given wrong information on it at the time of its writing, when I realized they had then written theirs. I corrected info and tried to do the same on their site. Real honest blogs don’t have awaiting moderation so they can review and only allow their own misinformation to be the only thing seen.

    Horse Racing Wrongs doesn’t help any cause, on the contrary they cause more harm on this subject matter. I’d reconsider having them as a link. You want honesty to contribute for the end of slaughter not rhetoric.

    A bill that would in effect prohibit the slaughter of horses in the U.S. as well as the export of horses for slaughter, such as to Canada or Mexico, has been introduced in Congress.

    The Safeguard American Food Exports Act of 2015 cites health concerns as the primary rationale to prohibit the sale or export of horses or horsemeat for human consumption, the American Horse Council said in a May 4 press release. The measure was introduced by Reps. Frank Guinta of New Hampshire, Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, and Vern Buchanan of Florida.

    The bill provides that horses are not raised for human consumption and that they are frequently treated with drugs that pose a serious threat to human health if eaten, the AHC said. The bill is intended to protect the public from such risk by making it illegal under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to knowingly sell or transport horses or parts of horses in interstate or foreign commerce for purposes of human consumption.

    Like recent legislation dealing with horse slaughter, the bill is different from other bills introduced in earlier Congresses that focused on welfare concerns for horses. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Agriculture.

    End

    One can only pray it passes, I plan to contact my congressman/woman. Have already flipped to FB and all my friends are like me Thoroughbred Horse people that care about the horses after their careers and many have turned their farms into sanctuaries to help find them homes.

    I know for a fact my MP, Leon Benoit, will not support anti-slaughter legislation. I’ve written him many letters concerning the slaughter of horses in Canada and their in-humane treatment. He’s a Conservative, what can you expect.
