They shoot horses, don't they?

In case you didn't know, there is a movement afoot to stop legally operating businesses from following their own plans.
See, there are a few places in the country that take horses that are facing the possibility of painful death, neglect, etc, and they process the horsemeat and send it overseas. No one in America eats it, but it's a delicacy in other countries. So, America, land of the free, not only wants to stop a business from helping people and making money, they want to stop other countries from following their own choices.
In today's Fort Worth Star Telegram, Bob Ray Sanders points out the hypocrisy.
It's not like the people against it are Vegans or anything. They just don't want people eating horse meat because they love horses. So, they want the horses kept alive and in pain.

I think that article was misleading, and it's irrelevant anyway. We ban the practice of killing cats and dogs for food and people don't see that as irrational. Even the old and sick ones. We don't eat them and we don't allow them to be eaten. Nothing wrong with that. Horses are no different, unless it's that they are worth more monetarily, but honestly I don't think a pet's worth should be measured in dollars. Even if that wasn't the case, it's not about "old and sick" animals; there is nothing keeping them from killing wild young horses in order to sell their meat either. And there's more than enough evidence to show that happening to convince me these plants should be shut down.
