According to Sonja Meadows, founder of Animals' Angels, "The whole process behind the horse slaughter industry is mostly hidden. If people knew, they would be outraged. It is the goal of Animals' Angels to raise awareness among the general public regarding this predatory and abusive industry. I think if people knew, more would get involved and pressure Congress. Right now, only horse enthusiasts are contacting Congress to pass the SAFE Act."
Hoofbeats of Horror (warning: graphic content), with footage taken straight from Animals' Angels investigations, gives a realistic and accurate view of what happens to horses in the slaughter pipeline and it shows just why it is so imperative that legislation is passed to protect these majestic animals.
No horse deserves the horrific fate shown in this video. We must all stand together and be a strong, united voice for the voiceless and pressure our representatives to get behind this current legislation.
