The Face Of Slaughter ~ 


*Every 4 minutes a horse from this country is slaughtered for human consumption..

*92.3% of horses slaughtered are in good to excellent condition with no behavioral problems according to a USDA study.

*Only 4% of all horses slaughtered are over 9 years old.

*In a poll by the prestigious Lake Research Partners, 80% of all Americans say NO to horse slaughter!

The photos in the album above were taken at the slaughter export pens in Presidio.  As heartbreaking as they all are the most disheartening is the one of the pregnant mares.  When I took this photo I could not help but wonder what happens to the babies of these mares.....a skull of a baby horse was found near these pens.


I have received complaints about the pictures of horses who have been slaughtered.  The complaint is we should focus on the positive by showing pictures of horses that have been rescued.  While rescuing is a important part of helping the horses and I support all the efforts of rescues, there is more to be done to stop this madness!  The horses in the photos on this page could not have been rescued....their fate was sealed!  I will never stop honoring their sacrifice.....their faces are what people need to see for the are the face of slaughter! 

I encourage you to support rescues and help with the needs of the rescued.  Also please use your voice in defense of those who cannot speak nor defend themselves, together we can and will make a difference. ~ Neta
