According to Dr. Lester Friedlander, DVM and former Chief USDA Inspector: “The captive bolt is not a proper instrument for the slaughter of equids, these animals regain consciousness 30 seconds after being struck, they are fully aware they are being vivisected”. But that’s not what Sue Wallis, a Wyoming Republican Representative, wants you to know.Sue, who some call “Slaughterhouse Sue”, is on the board of a group of horse industry professionals who make their livelihoods from the blood of horses…one way or another. They ARE rubbing their hands together in excited anticipation of horse slaughter plants to opening in the U.S. again, even though humane compassionate people shut those plants down 5 years ago. To rally support from the general public, Sue Wallis makes outrageous claims and comparisons, as if we are all stupid and will be fooled by her lies AND TWISTED PRESENTATION OF WELL- KNOWN MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC FACTS.Here’s something that she recently distributed: “It is cruel and inhumane NOT to slaughter a horse that you cannot keep and cannot feed”.BUT SHE NEVER ONCE MENTIONS OVER-BREEDING OF HORSES as the root cause of the situation.
