The issue is heating up that a New Mexico horse slaughter plant may soon be opening. Despite the majority of Americans that Opposes it or that Our own Government had recently added a new bill to NOT fund US inspectors for a horse slaughter plant for the year of 2014 in the US.

The EU has strict rules and has imposed a new order NOT to buy certain horses that come off Race Tracks or horses that have been medicated with such drugs as wormers, brute, steroids etc. Plain and simple the EU does NOT want American Horses, But Ricky De La Santos still thinks he will be able to make it work..

He states he plans to sell to Russians Yet again even the Russians wont even buy American Beef or any meats from the US. This is NOT about the welfare of the horses its merely a reward for criminals and irresponsible people. Who have no history of helping or donating to any Horse rescues in the US.

The AVMA and the AAEP have taken an Oath to protect horses and have failed. They know it and still stick by there words its HUMANE EUTHANIZA. Just recently they changed there statements about double decker hauling horses to supporting a ban on usage due to so many accidents on HWYs. I personally see they felt a lawsuit coming being they supported double decker usage for many years.

The truth is its a slaughter support slaughter industry Horse Auctions, kill buyers, Horse plants, Cattle buyers, Swine plants, Beef plants, Pork plants, AG, Farm Bureau they all lie to the public and consumers. As if ( Happy Cows come from CA) right and HSUS prove them wrong.

Just a note you can stop this evil business by boycotting any car, truck, home insurance with Farm Bureau. Let them know we can make them or Break them. NOTE beware of such AG GAG bills also supported by AG and Farm Bureau to PUNISH whistle blowers exposing animal cruelty. These AG GAG bills also violates our 1st Amendment rights freedom of speech.

Also contact your elected officials and tell them to co/sponsor our horse bills HR1094 and S541.

Sincerely Tommy Lee
