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.

    I read Mr Halperns’s comments in the Denver Post. Thank you. To add; the wild horses do have predators on the range, PZP & Gonacon (anti-fertility and pesticide drugs) disrupt the herd’s hierarchy and limit genetic strength, many professional articles have stated there are rare strains of wild horses being eliminated through BLM roundups, burros create water holes through digging and these benefit other wildlife, the BLM are siding with livestock owners and using disingenuous arguments to dispose of native and familiar strains of horses in favor of ecologically destructive habits of livestock. Desertification follows in their path. Many horses advocates are playing both sides for profit – benefiting financially from anti-fertility drugs and using photos to create sympathy for the horses and burros but not using donated funds to purchase them from holding pens.

    The slaughter houses in Mexico and Canada are not the final solution for theses proud equines. YouTube videos can show you how they operate. The BLM and other agencies have been corrupted for many years and are speeding up their removal of wild horses and burros before…?

    Americans have time and time again shown that horse slaughter does not align with our values or culture. Please vote in favor of the SAFE act.

    The treatment the horses and donkeys receive is inhumane. Their destiny is a slow and painful death. There is no truth in the reasons BLM give for removing them. Their stuffed in holding pens with sun baking them standing in feces, urine and infection. Probably not much food and water. Taxpayers money at work and try to sell them back to us if they can. Otherwise off to the most cruel form of death. These horses discovered our country, fought wars, traveled across country with settlers, farmed and many other things. Now they make people rich through the capture system. Hrses deserve freedom.

    This is the most inhumane thing that has ever been legal. It must stop at all costs. These horses were not created to be murdered for profit. Please someone find a way to stop this.
