We must all do our part if we want this cruel, unspeakable and un-American practice to end. A major drive on the part of all Americans who want to permanently stop the slaughter of America's horses here and abroad need to become very pro-active in order for it to reach President Obama's desk before time runs out.
According to the Associated Press, horsemeat lobbyist and former Congressman Charles Stenholm (D-TX), is trying to encourage some American Indian tribes to construct horse slaughterhouses on their reservations. Please let Charles Stenholm know how you feel about this by contacting him at Olsson Frank Weeda at 1400 Sixteenth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036; Phone: (202) 789-1212; Fax: 9202) 234-3550. Cathleen Doyle, former head of the California Equine Council and the Director of the Save the Horses campaign in California that passed the first state initiative in history which banned the slaughter of horses for human consumption, had some choice words for Mr. Stenholm about his intentions for resurrecting horse slaughter on Indian reservations.
