Is there also a petition for those in favor of resuming horse slaughter?

We do not keep barren cows, they go to slaughter. There is no reason not to have horses also be productive.

My dogs are also working mothers whose pups help defray the cost of all the anti coyote killing laws passed by well meaning but misguided people that have resulted in so many killed but uneaten livestock. (LGD pups/dogs are generally not available from rescue groups.)

There are lots of stolen cattle, but I do not see anyone trying to outlaw cattle slaughter or eating beef because of cattle theft.
