Protect wild & domestic horses from slaughter

Editor, Ceres Courier,

I support passing the Safe Act to ban horse slaughter this year. I have seen thousands of our American horses going to slaughter each year and this is the ultimate form of animal cruelty.

These horses are sent to Mexico and Canada for human consumption in foreign countries, even though America was built on the backs of our companion horses. They fought our wars, plowed our fields, pulled our wagon trains and filled our lives with love and fulfillment.

I am hoping our government officials step up and pass Save America’s Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act (H.R. 3355/S. 2732).

We owe our beloved horses better – both domestic and wild.
