The Screaming – Can You Hear It Sue?

Joe Maxwell, a member of the Humane Society, raises pigs in Missouri and said he was surprised that Unified Equine would invest in a slaughterhouse with that legislation pending. Horses are not fit or safe for eating, he said, because the medications they receive are not generally regulated with meat production in mind.

Maxwell said their wild temperament, relative to cattle or pigs, makes the kill stage at slaughterhouses, where they are shot in the head with a mechanical bolt or a gun, a more traumatic event.

They are a fight-or-flight type animal that goes screaming its way to its end.”
