American Opinion

"State and nationwide polls have shown that the vast majority of Americans are strongly opposed to horse slaughter:
In 1995 - A national call-in TV poll resulted in 93% of callers agree that 'the killing of horses for meat be banned.'
In 1997 - A state-wide poll taken in California revealed that 88% of those questioned were opposed to horse slaughter.
In 1999 - A poll conducted in New York State yielded the following results:

  • 91% considered horses companions, recreational or sporting animals -
  • 72% would never eat horse meat -
  • 73% believed that the manner that horses are slaughtered is cruel and inhumane -
  • 81% personally opposed the practice of horse slaughter."

    So, excuse me. Suddenly it's okay to bastardize our own cultural standards?

    Baxter, my kitty who collapsed this morning, is doing better, but we're not sure what happened. We're still waiting on some more bloodwork to come back. Today's vet bill? $460. My husband is getting a pack of Cheese Nips for Christmas. I'm just glad Baxter is alive. Even the vet said he thought he had a goner on his hands this morning when I first brought him in.
