8/16/13 As Americans Do We Want Our Wild Horses or Any Horses on American Soil Rounded Up and Sent to Mexican or Canadian Slaughter Houses? "Lawsuit Filed to Stop Sale of Wild Horses at Slaughter Auction on Saturday.Wild Horse & Conservation Groups Allege Feds Failed to Protect Wild Horses in Tribal Roundup; 467 Horses Await Fate at Slaughter Auction"

What has Happened to the Heart of Humanity to Allow This Abuse of Horses?

The transport of these horses to slaughter plants in this country is bad enough but to transport them to other countries is despicable. These horses are living creatures with family bonds and how they are treated by "kill" buyers at auctions and how whole families are rounded up by helicopters shows what happens when people become callus and indifferent and forget they are part of the world, not in control of it. I know this is a dog and cat blog but these horses need support.  These horses are going to be killed in a horrible assembly line manner just like all the " meat " we eat in factory farms unless animal lovers and horse lovers and people who know  life matters, people with awareness take action.

"A total of 467 horses were captured by the tribe and delivered to the slaughter auction, according to officials, where they await their fate. An undetermined number of these horses are unbranded and likely to be wild horses. The Forest Service has acknowledged that most of these horses will be purchased by kill buyers and trucked to slaughter plants in Canada or Mexico. Photographs of the horses show hundreds of mares and foals, yearlings and adults crammed into pens at the stockyard.
