Anti Horse Slaughter Billboards Glenville, PA - Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue (www.saveahorsenow.org) is pleased to announce that the newest billboard in their campaign to educate the general public about horse slaughter has gone up in Calgary, Canada, home of the Calgary Stampede. Horses that are not suitable as "bucking stock" for the stampede are sent to slaughter cites a May 2012 article by the Vancouver Humane Society http://www.vancouverhumanesociety.bc.ca/calgary-stampede-sends-young-horses-to-slaughter/ The billboard guides the reader to its companion website www.stopslaughteringus.ca which provides up to date factual information regarding horse slaughter and what residents of Canada can do to help end slaughter in their country.
According to the USDA, exactly 133,241 U.S. horses were sent to slaughter last year. These horses are transported to Mexico and Canada in double decker trailers for slaughter and the meat is shipped to Europe for human consumption. Angel Acres’ grassroots campaign is funded strictly by horse advocates donating to the billboard campaign. The educational campaign is separate from the rescue activities.
Charlotte Uhrich, board sponsor said, "We are pleased to put this Anti Horse Slaughter Billboard up in support of NDP MP Alex Atamanenko and his Bill C-322, a Bill to end horse slaughter in Canada. Horse slaughter is inhumane and barbaric, we do not slaughter and eat our companion animals in Canada. The closet door has been opened to Canada's dirty little secret and it is time to end this evil practice."
Acres Horse Haven Rescue is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit rescue located in Glenville, PA dedicated to saving horses bound for slaughter for human consumption.
