Unfortunately those who dedicate their lives to animal advocacy far too often come across individuals, who by way of their own choices refuse to acknowledge the terrible truth about the continued brutality waged against animals with whom we share this planet.
In some cases, it is a lack of awareness, failing to do their own required research before they make ridiculous and uneducated comments. They, by their very own omissions of action, remain blissfully ignorant of the facts, statistics, undercover videos, documented cases and published testimonies and accounts that are witnessed by those dedicated to saving animals.
There are those too, who, because they state it is too difficult for them to view pictorial and or video evidence fail to appreciate the horrific suffering of animals around the word.
Just the other day, I commented on a Blog Post: “Horses need a Humane society” to which one response rather blew me away. The response implied the spread of rumours that could not be proved as well as innuendo. Obviously the individual has failed to spend the needed research time, and while may be passionate in feelings towards horses on a personal level, insults those of us who do put in the endless hours necessary giving these magnificent equids a voice.

The CHDC published a very informative report: “Black Beauty Betrayed” the Slaughter of US and Canadian Horses: a report on equine slaughter at Natural Valley Farms Horse Slaughterhouse in Neudorf, Saskatchewan: April 27 – May 1, 2008. This report is a MUST read for all who believe in the sanctity of life period.
The CHDC received both video footage and pictorial evidence in May 2008 from an unknown source as to what was actually taking place at the Natural Valley Slaughterhouse. The pictures and videos are terrifying and extremely graphic, as a courtesy to my readers I must warn you.
A great many people are dedicated to saving horses not only in Canada and the US, but around the world as well. Many of these individuals such as Craig Downer, author of “The Wild Horse Conspiracy”, another MUST read; Katia Louise film maker of “Saving America’s Wild Horses: A Nation Betrayed; Monika my Colorado contact; The Equine Welfare Alliance, The ‘Cloud Foundation’ and of course the Canadian Horse Defense Coalition..not to mention countless others as myself who continue to get the message out and to give these beautiful creatures a voice.
Sadly there will always remain those who will continue in their pro horse slaughter campaigns, spewing out their lies and propaganda to aid in the continued annihilation of wild horses both in Canada and the US to fuel their greed. Sadly there will remain those individuals who voice un-educated comments that, if anything, point to a lack of knowledge and real understanding (having failed to learn the truth by researching the facts). Sadly companion horses will continue to face the brutality and horrific deaths in slaughterhouses within Canada and Mexico..the US banned their own slaughterhouses years ago however there is a real push on now by pro-slaughter supports such as Wallis to have them re-opened.

A Sweeping Undercover Investigation of Canada’s Leading Equine Slaughterhouses
“In late February 2010, the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition (CHDC) received hidden camera footage of horse slaughter practices at Viande Richelieu in Quebec and Bouvry Exports in Alberta – the latter known as the largest exporter of horsemeat in North America. The CHDC has compelling proof that puts into question the effectiveness of the assembly-line slaughter of horses. The evidence demonstrates that both the facilities in Alberta and Quebec fail to meet humane slaughter standards used by the CFIA to audit Canadian slaughterhouses.”
Black Beauty Betrayed:
Canada continues to import US horses into this country for slaughter. This horsemeat is then shipped overseas, may wind up in pet foods, and has already been declared unfit for human consumption.

The pictures below are published with the permission of my Colorado contact and show show the continued inhumane roundups conducted by the US Bureau of Land Management.
These wild horses are being rounded up for slaughter, often times being knocked off their feet by helicopters used by the BLM.

THE BUREAU OF LAND MISMANAGEMENT DOES IT AGAIN, AND THEY ARE ROUNDING UP THE USUAL SUSPECTS — THE WILD HORSES, OF COURSE — AND CHASING THEM WITH HELICOPTERS IN THE HEIGHT OF FOALING SEASON. How did it come to this?
