END HORSE SLAUGHTER!!!!

Each year, thousands of former equine pets and companions are killed and shipped overseas to satisfy a disturbingly growing demand. Many people may not be aware that these beautiful animals are destined to end up on the dinner table. But that's exactly what's happening and here are the facts:

FACT: Horse meat is not comsumed by humans in the majority of Canada. It is shipped (live & processed) overseas to Europe & Japan to satisfy demand there. Canada is the fourth largest supplier of horse meat in the world.

FACT: Horses endure long, sometimes painful trips to the slaughter plant in double-decker trailers. They fight amongst themselves, kicking and biting each other. Those that are injured or lame are often trampled. They go without food or water for many hours, sometimes days. Some are already dead when they arrive at the slaughter plant.

FACT: The slaughter process is not a humane one, as many would claim. The horses are shot in the head with a bolt (which does not always render the animal unconcious), then have their throat slit. These animals then bleed to death or suffocate in their own blood.

FACT: Slaughter houses do not discriminate. They take all kinds. Foals, pregnant mares (sometimes full-term), ex-racehorses, school horses, ponies, donkeys, etc. No horse is safe.

**Our nation's horses deserve better than this. Please make your voice heard where their's can't. Sign this petition today.**
