This article is going to remain brief, focused and to the point - The dismay about the first operating horse slaughter plant in the United States is becoming reality.
According to the attorney for Valley Meat Company, located in Roswell, New Mexico, “The plant could be slaughtering horses in three weeks.”
His name is A. Blair Dunn. He projects that the killing horse plant will employ around 100 individuals and they intend to process up to 100 horses each day.
The Valley Meat Company is only one of several butchery companies that are ready, willing and able to kill our American horses. Apparently there is no shortage of companies that want to trade in horse meat in our country.
Valley Meat Company is the company that’s been the most pushy and outspoken about resuming horse slaughter, but it is not the only company anxious to begin the grisly business. Increasing pressure has been applied on the U.S. Department of Agriculture to deal with the meat inspection issue. Yet on the one hand, the sequester purportedly cuts back on meat inspections and on the other, the horse slaughter plant is going to have inspectors.
The USDA is not speaking about this, for the moment. It had previously stated, however, that the facility had to meet specific technical requirements and the inspectors had to be properly trained. To put it bluntly, the USDA said it will “legally have no choice but to go forward with inspections.”
It all makes one wonder why “no choice” is even a consideration. If the majority of the citizens of the United States do not want a horse slaughterhouse, why is there even “no choice” as a consideration. Do we simply have to stand still while foreign companies or companies with roots in foreign countries dictate what happens here? Certainly, the horse slaughter “business” is not providing dollars to our country. If previous slaughterhouses had anything in common, it is that all the money from the killing plus the meat and many of the workers were from foreign countries.
The whole horse slaughter issue, just like the wild horse issue, is simply another way to force the majority . . .
