Subject: ***Spread The Word: Ban on Horse Slaughter Reinstated 

Dear Suzanne,

Last night, Congress passed a bill that included my provision to ban domestic horse slaughter once again in the United States.

Slaughtering horses is inhumane, disgusting and unnecessary.

My provision banned this cruel practice, and it also keeps our food supply safe from toxic meat and saves taxpayer dollars. However, the ban only lasts for one fiscal year.

As an equine enthusiast and someone who is deeply concerned about the serious health and safety risks posed by tainted horse meat, I am diligently working to pass a permanent ban on horse slaughter. There is no place for it in the United States. Last year, I introduced the bipartisan Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act. This legislation would permanently prohibit horse slaughter operations in the U.S., and end the current export and slaughter of more than 150,000 American horses abroad each year.

I will continue to push for the passage of the SAFE Act, to permanently ban the slaughter of horses in the United States and prohibit the transport of America’s horses to other countries for slaughter.

Now is the time to act. Please join me in supporting a permanent ban of horse slaughter and the SAFE Act.

Show your support of ending horse slaughter. Thank you for your interest and involvement in advancing this vital effort.

Sincerely,

Sen. Mary Landrieu
