Racing Executive Admits Multiple Thousands of Thoroughbreds Slaughtered Annually

Racing Executive Admits Multiple Thousands of Thoroughbreds Slaughtered Annually
NOVEMBER 10, 2019

"In a recent USA Today article on horse slaughter, this: “…an estimated 7,500 thoroughbreds a year are slaughtered for human consumption, according to Alex Waldrop, president of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association.”

Yes, that’s right, one of the most prominent, powerful people in racing concedes that multiple thousands of “equine athletes” are brutally and violently bled-out and butchered each year. (Waldrop’s number, 7,500, shocking as it is, is almost surely understated: One industry-linked vet puts it at 10,000-12,000; an apologist writer says it’s even more.) This, alone, should be enough for all Americans of good conscience to support the abolition of this vile industry."

7. So LIVE your own principles. Save a horse. Monthly payment

will only average what a new car's would. And if you happen to have a pasture and stable, only several hundred per year, not including medical fees, which could run to thousands.

Of course, you'll want to save for burial. Imagine "what the heck do I do now?" when you have a couple thousand pounds of dead horse in your back yard, and you can kind of see the problem.

6. I agree that's too many

But, Thoroughbreds make up only 12% of the horses sent to slaughter.

8. We're horrified people eat horse and dog.

Others are horrified we eat swine and cattle.

And then there is the bush meat trade.

Protein.
