If you have ever been around horses, you would know that there is a HUGE difference between horses and other livestock. Slaughtering horses is NOT the same as slaughtering sheep, etc.
This report makes it sound like all race horses go to slaughter which is simply not true! what you should talk about is how the medications regularly given to horses (racing or pleasure) make their meat unsafe for human consumption. The meat Europeans are paying $29/pound for is laced with cancer causing chemicals-I guess that's what they get. one more thing-the horses that go to slaughter-you will find pets, show horses, race horses, parade horses, every type of horse imaginable-NOT just "broken down old nags"!!
