2013 Ag Bill Does NOT Have DeFunding Language ~ Call Committee Now to Stop Horse Slaughter



We have just received word that the senate will indeed be opening the 2013 Ag appropriations bill next week.

They are adopting the bill passed by the house that does not have the defunding language. The house did not open discussions and carried over the existing language.

It is very important that you contact Senator Mikulski and the subcommittee members and ask that the language defunding horse inspections be restored.

Please call NOW as next week may be too late…

  1. Horse slaughtering is becoming a loosing business just like the horse racing industry. Just watch, governments will scramble to prop them up with taxpayers money so that more people will innocently enough poison themselves to death with all the crap that horses are medicated with these days. Come on people, take back your lives and spare those of the innocent horses.

  2. When you’re done calling, how about tweeting?



    Why should our tax dollars be spent on meat we don’t eat, at no economic benefit to the USA? Prevent the problems the EU is facing with beef contaminated by horsemeat and pork. The EU’s food pipeline requirement of animal passports is not working! Animals not raised for slaughter should not be slaughtered for food and most if not all American horses slaughtered in Canada or Mexico, are not fit for human consumption. TRIM THE FAT!
