The Criminal Record of Horse SlaughterJohn Holland, Pres.Equine Welfare Alliancein the matter of HB 1392


  • Non-profit 501(c)(4) corporation.

  • 290 member organizations and partners in 21 countries.

  • Provides research and investigation in matters of equine welfare.

  • Our studies, data and investigations are available to law makers, law enforcement and the public.


Tainted Meat


Food Safety

  • Horses are not raised in the US as food animals.

  • Horses are given drugs that are banned in animals intended for human consumption.

  • Phenylbutazone, “aspirin” for horses, causes cancer and bone marrow suppression in humans. Children are especially vulnerable.

  • In the EU, horses must be designated for slaughter at birth, and all drugs given them are tracked through a “passport” microchip system.

  • Selling this contaminated meat is immoral at best.


Pollution and Environmental Damage


Pretreatment Tank at Cavel (Mar. 06)


Cavel operated for 3 years without meeting discharge requirements a single month


Organ disposal at Natural Valley Farms


Blood spill at Dallas Crown


Increased Crime


Tax Evasion


Political Corruption(GAO Report 11-228)


Equine Abuse and Neglect

  • Our statistical studies show increases in horse slaughter correlate with increases in abuse.

  • Horses sent to slaughter are not old and unwanted. They are mostly young sport horses.

  • Horse abuse correlates most closely with the price of hay.


END


In one 19 month period of operation Dallas Crown committed 481 violations.
