excerpt

70% of Americans oppose horse slaughter, that President Obama made a campaign promise to permanently ban horse slaughter and exports of horses for human consumption (horses can be sent to Mexico and Canada), that documentation of animal cruelty, slaughterhouse stench, fluid runoff and negative community impact exists, it is taxpayers that will bear the costs!

Wyoming state representative Sue Wallis and her pro-slaughter group estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants.

While I cannot imagine slaughtering a horse, I have tried it raw...it's not bad at all.  Wouldn't try it again for the price though!

 Every year there is an exotic meat tasting at a local club my father in-law belongs to.  Horse meat is served there and I've eaten it a few times.  It's expensive but not half bad.  I would eat almost any kind of meat besides cat, dog and of course cock.

Given his history, I would think that he would want to legalize dog!

I'm certainly not a fan of Obama's, but this should have never been made illegal in the first place.

What the hell?

Huh

McCain isn't even what he used to be.  He might, I say might, have gotten my vote if he had won the nomination in 2000.

What Horse Meat Tastes Like



News came out earlier this week that horse meat could soon be butchered for food in the U.S. (though it's not exactly like slaughterhouses are going to pop up out of the blue). Horse meat is consumed in several large countries worldwide, but it remains quite the taboo in North America.

This past May, "Top Chef Canada" aired an episode in which the contestants had to cook with horse meat, which Food Network Canada called one of the most traditionally French foods. The episode was met with vehement protests, despite the fact that over 90,000 horses annually are slaughtered for meat in Canada. About five million horses are slaughtered in the top eight countries that eat horse meat. In 2006, the French consumed 25,380 metric tons.

So, what does it taste like?

Horse is a versatile meat that lends itself to a variety of preparations. It has more protein, and less fat than lean beef. It tastes somewhat like a mix between beef and venison. It can be a bit sweeter than other red meats, yet still possesses a dense meat flavor with a hint of gaminess.

In Parma, Italy, it is often eaten raw -- similar to beef tartare (same with Japan). Further north, in Verona, it is served as a stew. Horse meat is the basis of many Kazak dishes. Like other red meats, it can also be served as a roast, or ground up into a burger.

A horse is a highly intelligent animal, and a friend to man.  It is uncivilized to kill and eat it.

Serge was said to have eaten up to six pounds of horse meat daily when training.

I know that you live in one of the states that will be affected by this. Of course, most new laws translate to increased financial (tax) burden on residents. What bearing will the new law specifically have on the tax-payers in your region?

Also, the recent passing of this law directly contradicts another of the idiot's campaign promises, but I noticed that it was approved by both the House and the Senate. This seems like an odd matter for them to agree on. Makes me wonder what's in it for them.

I believe a five-year ban was imposed after Congress defunded the USDA inspection process.
I don't know the details, but they shouldn't be hard to research.

A lot of people in certain parts of the country ride and/or own horses, which probably leads many folks to equate horses to traditional household pets.

I can't speak for what goes on in other people's minds, but interestingly enough, PETA was actually a supporter of lifting the horse slaughter ban: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2011/1130/Lifting-horse-slaughter-ban-Why-PETA-says-it-s-a-good-idea
