9. Wrong question - especially given inhumane history of horse slaughter in US
Slaughter was banned in US for a reason - it was (and I'm sure will be again) inhumane. Yes, here. Re-instating slaughter is not the answer to unwanted horses and irresponsible owners, anymore than 6 million or so abandoned dogs/cats killed in US is an answer to feral dogs and animal abuse and overpopulation. There are real answers to unwanted animals but they are expensive, and owner/breeder associations would fight them tooth and nail - just as dog breeders in CA (I think it was) fought and defeated a law that would have actually put a dent in irresponsible breeding and the consequent # of unwanted dogs.
