Transport to Slaughter: The European Perspective

A new video has been released by a coalition of European equine welfare organizations, including the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) and the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA). This video is posted to give American blog-readers some perspective on pending US legislation outlawing horse slaughter, with the caveat that legislation is great…but without enforcement funds and effort, suffering will go on. And does. The EU has precise regulations about horse transport which, as you will see, are not being enforced.

This video makes the excellent point that local slaughter plants are a possible solution so that meat is transported, not horses. It is almost ten minutes long, so settle in.
