Humane treatment should be given to all animals as we are able. However, the animal kingdom is based on the concept that some organisms do die to give life to others. Why horses should be given different treatment than chickens and cows I am not sure.
Why should a horse that has humanly prized genetics be treated better than his common pen mates?
The laws against horse slaughter in the US created this "need" to ship these horses so far under cruel circumstances. If we want to butcher in a more humane way, let us do it ourselves.
PETA is no friend of people or animals. It 's a sham that uses our emotions for their own agenda.
