May 2013 Missouiri Horse Slaughter Poll Result
Rains Natural Meats, located in Gallatin, Missouri, is one of the applicants that filed with the USDA to open a horse slaughter facility. As a proactive initiative, the ASPCA commissioned a Lake Research Partners survey in MO which showed that opening a horse slaughter plant in Missouri goes against public opinion.
Results reveal that 70% of Missouri voters are opposed to the slaughter of U.S. horses for human consumption and that 75% do not want a horse slaughter plant in their community. The statewide survey reveals that Missourians overwhelmingly oppose horse slaughter regardless of their political affiliation, gender, geographic location or whether they live in an urban or rural area.
Please keep the pressure on legislators to support the SAFE Act, which will put a nationwide ban on horse slaughter and prevent horses from being exported across US borders for butchering. Click here for ASPCA’s SAFE Act action alert:
