The cruelty to horses

RE horse killing:

Amidst all the media hype about the contamination of processed food, we have not heard or read one single word about the awful cruelty to horses subjected to slaughter in abattoirs.

Although we may object to eating horse meat in the UK that doesn’t stop us slaughtering horses (9,400) last year and exporting their meat to other countries.

How much better not to eat any animals. Raising livestock is grossly wasteful of the planet’s resources and their methane emissions cause more global warming than all the powered transport in the world (United Nations FAO report, November 2006).
