    It is easy to understand your feelings.

    Were one reared in a culture, e.g., Asia, where many different foods are consumed, such meat is considered acceptable for human consumption.

    Under extreme circumstances, folks have been known to eat belts, insects, etc., when sufficiently hungry or necessary to sustain life.

    If it is processed under proper sanitary and controled/inspested as is the beef industry I think it would be accepted.. Is accepted in other parts of the world.. just a social stigma that has stopped the practice in the USA. Have sampled it when in Japan at a very corporate function and found the taste and texture very pleasantly pleasing.. Have had wild game that was less palatable to my tastes.. It is really more about what is accepted by the culture of the after all is just another form of protein after emotion is eliminated …

    When those of you that oppose humane horse slaughter are able to feed, medicate, treat, and facilitate all of the unwanted, ill, and injured horses, please let those of us that support it know so we can help you begin your quest to provide them such a happy existence. Until then, please help us keep these poor animals out of the horrific and gruesome mexican slaughterhouses you have sent them to.
    I do not support horse slaughter, I support HUMANE horse slaughter. Now it’s time to try to put all differences and opinions aside and do what is ultimately best for unwanted, ill, and injured horses. Right now there is nobody with the funds or any other means that is willing to take care of all of them, especially in the current economy and drought.
