There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
It is clear, that after their racing career is over, the animals are worthless, useless, and unwanted to their owners. So, instead of wasting the money the horse has earned the cheapest way is to send them off to wherever they want. Which, is not a nice home, it is a death home. Living as an animal in the racing industry is difficult exhausting. From endless suffering and injuries, being injected and digesting illegal pills, and if you fail you are thrown out of the industry and killed for multiple usages.
Today the term euthanasia is used to give reason to the murders of innocent animals all over the world. Animals should only be put down by euthanasia if they are in pain or suffering. Unfortunately, most dogs that are euthanized over the course of the year are not aggressive or suffering from any disease (The Humane Society of the United States). Most of the animals are euthanized due to overpopulation in animal shelters. Euthanasia is a cruel and unnecessary practice that is not in the best interest for the animal.
However, most people do not know how to properly take care of said animals they have purchased. A retired County Sheriff has spent many years trying to doctor horses back from being malnourished, weak, and abused by their owners. The County Sheriff said that the “ on typical, Itawamba County soil, you can only carry one horse on one to three acres of land” and people have “a little pen around their house trailers and put four or five horses in it.” The County Sheriff wants stricter animal abuse laws to be put in place because the one offense will be deemed a misdemeanor, but if it is severe enough, it can be deemed a felony. There is no official animal shelter or humane society in Itawamba County for these animals to go to after they have been seized by the police if it came down to it. This article shines light on how people are willing to help animals, but the state makes it hard because of the lack of animal
Horses are abused in many cruel ways in equestrian sports. Equestrian sports include horseracing, show jumping, dressage, and competitions that “celebrate” a horse’s breed. These practices supposedly improve performance, but they qualify as animal abuse and cruelty. Abuse in equestrian sports can be anything from soring to drug abuse to racing horses underage. For some reason, the natural beauty of horses is not good enough to many people.
Greyhound cruelty is so bad that is could kill and this means literally the greyhounds could look great one minute but when on the track they trip and have to euthanised, And greyhound exploitation which is something that is not fair for the greyhound. Such as the dog has to run around a track all day but the owner gets the money, but it's not fair for the dogs. This is why greyhound racing must be
This is a particularly troubling issue because it shows that some people involved in horse racing don’t care about the animals and only view them as property. Once the horses are no longer profitable they discard them. I’ve read prominent people in the horse racing world say things to the extent of ‘the two most important players in the industry are owners and bettors.’ I would counter that we have nothing without the horses. One final issue that I have had with the current state of horse racing is its coverage by the media. Far too often it seems like those who cover horse racing, be in locally, nationally or in the social media world; avoid some of these pressing issues.
And you're reading my words wrong on purpose. C'mon, you can do better than that, can't you? But just in case you actually didn't for some reason understand what I meant, here's an example: let's say a horse was executed because it had a serious leg injury that couldn't be healed. We all know people eat meat that comes from horses, don't we? So, isn't it good to eat said horse's meat instead of let's say someone's that was solely executed for meat?
Food inspection has been one of the biggest issues for humans health. And back in the day there was no inspection for it. And many people would get sick from the meat especially they would buy, it was an essential source of protein and back then there wasn’t vegan people everyone used meat. Based on document D meats would get stored in a dark room of course rat is one of the big problem when it come to food. In order to get rid of the rats they used rat poison and when they would get the meat there was dead rats in there as well their poison and they would drag the meat on the ground
Animal abuse happens way too often, yet not enough people do anything to help make a difference. Another thing that needs to be stopped is the skinning, and the eventual killing of animals. America gets 50% of their fur from China, where cats and dogs are skinned alive against their will, and left to bleed to death. I can’t even begin to imagine how much pain and suffering those poor animals had to go through. No living creature should ever have to endure the pain people inflict on them, and I hope that stronger cruelty laws are placed into action in the near future, and maybe one day the abuse will stop.
