Horse Slaughter Advocates Working For Compromise With HSUS

Horse Slaughter Advocates Working For Compromise With HSUS

Horse slaughter advocates are still hoping to convince Humane Society of the United States officials and other activists to find middle ground to allow for slaughter of unwanted and neglected horses.  South Dakota livestock producer Bob Mack who recently met with HSUS says it’s more humane to slaughter horses than to let them starve or die a grisly death.

Mack says there is a humane way of slaughtering those animals and he wants all sides to sit down and discuss viable options to solve the problem.

Mack says part of the problem is that many horse owners are hobby farmers who don’t really know what to do with the animals when they’re no longer useful or need to be disposed.
