  • That is exactly why it is there, sometime you have to see things you don't like to understand exactly why it is so important. Trust me I could of put a lot worse up there....

  • Exactly Julia, well done for such a patition..We can make a differance..We will make a differance..You have my whole hearted support...
  • I appreciate what you are trying to do but what is the alternative??? Will horses have to travel for miles and miles to go to slaughter houses abroad, being stressed, with no food or water and where standards aren't as good as they are in our slaughter houses. Think it through.
  • Agreed that is not a suitable option, but in all honesty I do not see why the horses should be subject to either! This is just a small move to try and make the PM see that we will not sit back and ignore animal cruelty in this way! Ban hunting on the ground of cruelty yet this is allowed to carry on.....

  • It is not a small move. It is just doing an Ostrich, bury your head and let it happen in another country. Campaigning directly against the cruelty in this country - i.e., as humane slaughter practices as possible would be more productive for the horses themselves and other cattle subjected to such deaths.
  • Dear Julia,

    I had a look at your website courtesy of the pledge site and that to promote your campaign is going to take a lot of money, and I have an idea for your consideration that could raise a lot of money for you and your campaign on an ongoing and escalating basis. Very much people supporting you as they spend.

    If you would like details then please come back to me.

  • Gina Loxam i feel that you need to consider the fact that the government has put a TEMPORY ban on live exportation of horses abroard for slaughter. Surely if we show that we will not stand for slaughter in any way shape or form they will make the ban PERMENANT?
    I understand that slaughter houses are needed, but the cruelty that the poor animals are subjected to whilst in the slaughter houses is unacceptable.
    Maybe if the government recognise that people are not happy with the current methods of slaughter, they will do something about the cruelty even if a total ban is not able to happen.

  • Why is it almost entirely women that have signed this pledge? It's an interesting phenomenon is it not?

  • Horse meat is one of the most healthy meats available on the market the industry is regulated by consumate prophesionals who enforce the law unconditionaly animal welfare is of the highest degree in horse slaughterhouses there death is swift and quick I have never seen more than one shot used to despatch an animal as for the dressing process that is shown in the top picture this demonstraits absolutly no cruelty what so ever as the animal is brain dead at that point and part of owning an animal is knowing that some day you will need to make the ultimate decision its your choice how you do it and many owners chose the market place where there horese or pets run the risk of being baught by the slaughter traid lets get real horses don't live forever and disposal is an enevitable end if you don't want your pet going to the slaughterhouse have it put down in your stable and pay for it to be incinerated
