Thirteen Year Old Video Finally Released to the Public

I have no idea why Ms. Doyle waited so many years to release the video but the pic below and reams of documentation (Presidio) taken show that little has changed.

Picture of stallion in a kill pen (7/30/10). He and his two buddies, all friendly, and all with their mouths bound like this one, were sent to slaughter. Likely their mouths were bound for the whole trip.

End Horse Slaughter

Observations and Comments of a Former Horse Killer

Cathleen Doyle who spear-headed the historic passage of "Proposition 6" in California in 1998," the first state initiative to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption, released never-before-seen footage of a former horse killer and killer buyer (middleman for the horse slaughterhouses). The interview was taken with a lie detector and in front of then District Attorney Michael Bradbury. This revealing testimony was released in two parts on YouTube by Doyle. Here are both segments Part 1 and Part 2.

Over 75% of the American people are strongly opposed to horse slaughter. Since the passage of "Prop 6" in California thirteen years ago, a federal bill that would ban horse slaughter in the US and prohibit the transport of US horses to other countries for the purpose of slaughter has been continually blocked and/or opposed by the Farm Bureau, the Cattlemen, the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the American Veterinary Medical Association, most of the horse councils and all of the Big Ag groups.
