We are proud to announce the commencement of the largest, trans-Atlantic campaign ever initiated to fight horse slaughter. Aiming once again to target the slaughter industry from the consumer side, a highly influential alliance led by Animals' Angels USA is further exposing, in a new report, the painful conditions and cruelty endured by slaughter horses that become food.
A new report outlines how business in the US, Canada, Mexico, Argentina and Uruguay is still in clear violation of EU regulations. Humane standards are breached, overlooked and blatantly ignored. The horses are not the only victims to the industry; the consumers are as well.
"The momentum to end horse slaughter has never been stronger. Our own investigations, combined with the united force of this year's alliance, go hand in hand to speak as one unified voice. Now is the time for horse welfare advocates across the globe to pressure law makers in all countries for a complete ban on horse slaughter," said Sonja Meadows, President of Animals' Angels USA.
