Stop Horse Slaughter

Every year thousands of wild and domestic horses from Colorado and other states are being shipped to Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered and processed into food for Asian and European markets or are live shipped to countries like Japan for slaughter there. Often the person relinquishing his or her horse, perhaps because they can no longer afford to care for it, has no idea the buyer intends to sell the horse for slaughter. We require your address so we can match you with your elected officials. CVA does not share, sell or otherwise provide any of your personal information to any third party.

Dear Lawmaker,

I stand with 83% of Americans who oppose the slaughter of wild and domestic horses for human consumption. As my elected official I am asking you to support legislation that will be introduced in 2023 to end this cruel, barbaric and unnecessary practice.

    The immensely invisible wild slaughter pipeline that 9 out of 10 Americans are completely unaware of.

    I’ve been asking for this ban for a long time. Please. And range cows should never have greater rights than the wild horses and burros. Welfare ranchers and the agency enablers are destroying the western lands and wildlife. I’ve sent information on the deceptive practices of fertility control on wild horses by so-called advocates to each one of my representatives. But yet the practices go on. The horses and burros are rounded up through cruel means then warehoused in barren pens. The taxpayer expense is enormous for all these attempts to coddle the rancher and destroy our public lands for cows. Cows.

    80% of the voting public opposes horse slaughter, yet our Colorado legislators are afraid to vote to end it. In Colorado, agriculture, combined with hunting and fishing, are at the bottom of the list of industries contributing to the State’s GDP.

    There is no need to continue this barbaric practice so that these animals can be pulled from the wild and then tortured and slaughtered. There is absolutely no practical reason and it’s inhumane. As a society and one of the smartest states in the country we should know better. End this brutal practice now!

    Horses are American Icons and extremely mportant to respect these living mammals. Crucial to indigenous native Americans and the establishment of America as we know it, the horse should be protected and honored forever.

    Thank you for supporting this bill.
