Recently you Oklahoma assemblymen and women have decided to make the statement, throughout America, that Horse Slaughter is okay, by your votes. Well, it is not! And beyond your most disgusting and wild ignorance, it will not exist here the United States. You are not representative of the remainder of the United States and the people that live here, as a matter of fact just the opposite exists.
Animal Advocates consists of a diversity of people, and beyond all doubt are Americans, and always will be. To battle for Animal Rights is something humane, something from the hearts and souls of individuals, in this case Americans’! Whereby, a societies humane treatment of Animals remain grounded in reality, it is the very essence of the individual’s spirit, the essence of being an American.
Animal Advocates consist of many American’s to include Veterans, of Disabled Veterans, of all classes of men and women, housewives, ranchers, farmers, factory workers, office workers’, company executives, former CEO’s, actors, actresses, previous congressmen and women, Silver Star and Medal of Honor Recipients from wars present and past — and much more, the list is endless.
Apparently, we are all the “Evil Empire” (your legislator’s statement not ours) that you legislator’s assume to be the rest of America, other than apparently you people from Oklahoma, of course; and as if Oklahoma, and you legislator’s are the mere Saints among evil! How disgusting and irresponsible to regard that as an assumption!
Many of us indeed, who are Animal Advocates, are War Veteran’s, and we have taken your comments as an extreme insult and disrespectful toward us and other War Veterans! We fought for this nation, and you dribble that irresponsible remark toward everyone other than yourselves as if you people from Oklahoma are the only grace and saving spirit in America that has indeed fought for our nation!
Slaughtering our Wild Horse Herds and horses in general, and all the negativity and irresponsible conduct that comes with it, directed toward our American Icons, is not fighting for anything! In reality, your situation demonstrates a sickness, not that of American conduct and humane treatment of our nation’s animals! American’s remain much better than that!
Yes, you have basically insulted the majority of Americans! You will now pay the price within the following weeks of American’s disgust toward your ethics, your symbols of awkward self-righteousness’ and your attitude of “. . . to hell with the rest of America!” You will be receiving the wrath in overwhelming disrespect and lack of businesses doing business with you people in Oklahoma! And justifiably so.
And if there exist any way or means to take-away all the government stipends’ and welfare your State receives, then we will be sure to check how to do that as well. This is due to your overwhelming attitude and disrespect to so many tax payers throughout America, as if you people are the only people deserving such handouts of tax payer money!
We are not an Evil Empire, and American’s never have been such. It is you people that are evil, in your attempt to start an Evil Empire, except you have been caught! Your Re-election will probably not happen, as American’s within your State will confront that as well, when the time comes! If not, then shame on them!

there is no way to humanely slaughter a horse, they are a fight or flight animal and do not stand still in the kill box the way cattle, sheep and pigs do. they are not killed instantly when shot in the head with a stun bolt gun but only kno…cked unconscious which usually takes 3-12 shots to happen!. horses brains dont sit as close to the forehead as it does with other food animals so horses cant be killed instantly. when they are stung up by 1 hoof to hang upside down they are still alive when their throats are cut and then gutted, videos caught on hidden cameras in slaughter plants are on youtube, i suggest you watch some and educate yourself on what really happens to horses in slaughter plants. US horses are not tracked the way cattle, sheep and pigs are so when they end up at a slaughter plant, there is little to no medical history on them to show what drugs or medications they have received during their lifetime as most of the drugs/meds horses are required by state laws to have in order to race , show or enter into a boarding facility are banned by the USDA and FDA. these are drugs and medications that no food animal can have or else it can never enter the food supply. these drugs and medications have been proven to cause cancer and birth defects in humans to name just 2 reasons why the USDA and FDA has banned them.

Excellent letter, thank you to whomever wrote this ❤

Please stop the slaughter!
There is an alternative…. A Veterinarian assisted program with a respectful burial.
I saw my first horse put down at the Pine Oak Charity Horse show in Bellaire, Texas in the 50’s.
I cried as the arena lights were turned off and a moment of sadness lowered over everyone.
It was done with dignity and never to be forgotten.
Please, don’t let inconsiderate politians slander Oklahoma horses.

Thank you to the author of this letter. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Horse slaughter will never be an acceptable option in this country!
April 2, 2013 at 12:14 pm
the people in the town where this ‘facility’ could be built can also protest its construction.

Absolutely well written……wonderful!! I will not give up this fight until we have protected the well-being and integrity of our horses and also that of the human race.

I live in Oklahoma and own horses. I am ashamed of a handful of nieve or perhaps corrupt politicians that not only introduced these barbaric horse slaughter bills but actually insulted the
MAJORITY of good Oklahoman’s by ramming it through before we could comment on them.
In fact, ranchers and farmers who wanted a rider allowing them to at least opt their horses out of bidding by kill buyers were NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK by our legislature. They have taken our liberty away here in Oklahoma. The good old boys out here are already planning on stealing horses on OUR range and ranches for slaughter. Do you think that they are also now in secret meetings planning on feeding the 22,000 wild mustangs warehoused in Oklahoma into the meat grinder? I think you need to be really, really concerned about this. These near criminal types will do anything, tell any lies and take away your horse rights.
