  1. Well, take a look at his bio. High school education. Member of NRA & given an A- rating by them. Member of AQHA and on the Board of Directors of the Pajaro Gun Club. Sponsor at Ducks Unlimited. Received a small campaign contribution from a horseracing advocacy group. All of the above info is from votesmart.org. It says to me that he is a person who has no respect or affection for animals, and his interactions with them are purely for exploitation. I suspect he is a stunted, ignorant human being. If you’d like to ask why he supports horse slaughter or let him know how you feel about it, his senate email address is allen@oksenate.gov .

  2. The horse slaughter industry is an insidious, brutal and unforgiving business that exists for one reason
    and one reason only. Horse slaughter exists to supply the demand for horse meat and to profit from it.
    When horse slaughter comes to town, environmental hazards, economic woes, and the stigma
    associated with the cruelties inherent to killing horses for their meat, are only a part of the price they
    will pay.

  3. Anarchy is everywhere ,conscience is devoid, The greed of Man, and the all Mighty Dollar raises its ugly head . This has to end , we need Prime time commercials to educate a public that although 85% against slaughter ==Doesnt know its happening !.
    I was in Manhattan yesterday w/ some friends casually talking to everyday New Yorkers about Horse slaughter ==They have No Idea ! How could such a tragic, sick ,twisted thing like this, be for the most part unknown, Everyone has Smartphones and Computers . Overnight people were tuned into Koney and within weeks it was a Huge Issue [even though evidence proves him dead ] This issue needs to be spread far and wide throughout the Country ==And The Time is NOW!

  4. Here we go again. I wonder how much money this crook has been offered to change the law? It looks like what he is after is eventually opening up a horse slaughter plant in that state, this smells like Slaughter House Sue is involved here somewhere.
