BACKGROUND | MARY NASH’S HORSE MEAT SITE
Mary Nash’s Website is a collection of articles, correspondence and photographs related to the slaughter of America’s majestic horses. Mary Nash passed away in 2005 at her home, a few hundred yards away from Dallas Crown horse slaughter plant in Kaufman, Texas. It was her life’s dream to see the end of horse slaughter.
Mary Nash’s site will be continued in her honor by those who believe as she did. (Warning- some pictures and video on Mary Nash’s website are distrubing).
