Horse slaughter bill is about money, not compassion

Published: March 27, 2013

House Bill 1999 isn't about what's compassionate for horses. It's about money. Ranchers and breeders don't love their horses. For them, horses are a commodity. You don't dispose of an animal if it no longer serves your purpose. Animals are for life; you care for them from birth to death. If they become ill or aged, you euthanize them, not slaughter them. I grew up with horses. My parents didn't slaughter any of them as they grew old or infirm. Animals are a choice. If you can't care for the animal for all its natural life, don't have them.
