Regarding “Horse bill wins committee approval” (News, Feb. 13): State Rep. Skye McNiel, R-Bristow, author of House Bill 1999, asked, “What do you do when you see horses when they're at the end of their useful life?” I say that you do what most horse-loving people do. You call the veterinarian who's been caring for that horse all its life. This bill isn't about those horses or those people. It's about a group of people who are into slaughter for profit. They don't care that these animals will be inhumanely shipped in all weather in cramped, frightening conditions.
