PSA Raises Awareness About Cruelty of Horse Slaughter
|July 27, 2012||Posted by Laura Allen under Horse Slaughter, Press releases|
Wild for Life Foundation is pleased to announce the release of its brand new Flash media PSA, " Justice for America’s Horses", a public service announcement to raise awareness about the cruelty of horse slaughter. The 1 minute PSA comes in the wake of the recent push by foreign investors to expand a niche market forhorsemeat sold as a delicacy abroad.
History proves that USDA inspections fail to stop the insidious crimes of cruelty inside America’s slaughterhouses. Substantial evidence as documented by numerous governmental reports and undercover investigations reveal egregious violations and a total lack of enforcement by the USDA before horse slaughter plants were shut down in 2007. "If horseslaughter plants are reopened in the U.S., horses will undoubtedly suffer torturous agony on U.S. soil again," states Katia Louise, President of Wild for Life Foundation. "The new PSA, JUSTICE FOR AMERICA’S HORSES drives this point home through use of FOIA documentation previously suppressed by the USDA."
"Foreign slaughterers want the U.S. government to ignore the resounding opposition to horse slaughter by 80% of the American people, and instead give them our hard earned tax dollars to set up new killing shops in the heart of our home town communities."
As quoted from the PSA, "It doesn’t have to be this way. Federal protection is possible when you take a stand. Tell your policymakers to right the wrong by supporting the American Horse Slaughter PreventionAct."
JUSTICE FOR AMERICA’S HORSES was made possible by generous in kind contributions to Wild for Life Foundation from IMA Studios, Maria Daines, Paul Killington, Animal Law Coalition, Kaufman Zoning, Animals Angels & John Holland.
