    I am pretty shocked myself but this article says it all.
    http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2011/1130/Lifting-horse-slaughter-ban-Why-PETA-says-it-s-a-good-idea
    The idea is that slaughtering these horses will cause them less suffering but horse meat is also significantly harmful to humans. I was planning on attending a protest of Ringling Bros. tomorrow for my birthday which is being sponsored by Peta but this makes me reconsider. There are amazing individuals within Peta but the organization is shady to me and I don’t know how much I should be associated with Peta. Just thought I should share.

    Does this clear anything up? http://www.peta.org/blog/horse-slaughter-setting-record-straight/

    Doesn’t appear as though horse slaughter is something that PETA wants to be happening: http://www.peta.org/?s=horse+slaughter

        No the ALF is not violent they haven`t hurt anyone before, i read Ingrid E. Newkirk`s book-Free the animals and if you are an animal rights supporter you should not be condeming the Alf .

    If PETA is an animal rights group then obviously they must be against all slaughter including horses so they are kind of going back on themselves with this.

    I see. I wasn’t aware that the SAFE act would stop the trading of horses to other countries. Now I have no clue why PETA wouldn’t be supporting that act instead of lifting the ban. Any street team representatives wanna chime in?

    @tofumonster Thank you! I still do not understand. If their is a ban, horses will be sent overseas yes. But it’s not any better to add horses to the list of those slaughtered in the U.S. The SAFE act would effectively stop the slaughtering of horses in the U.S as well as trading horses to other countries. And if Peta doesn’t even support the ban, how can we make any process?
