He should run and his first act as a candidate should be thanks but no thanks, Montanan's are against DC based outside groups having influence on Montana's congressional delegation and say, "If I'm going to Washington, I'm going to CHANGE Washington, and PCCC can keep the change."
Alf said: "Do you protest as loudly and emotionally the same conditions and treatment for other livestock -- such as cattle, sheep, hogs, goats and poultry -- headed for the same fate ?"
Wm. B. said: "i see lots of complaints but no real solutions to the problems the system is facing..." Really? Several solutions are offered in these comments. 1) get exotic livestock off the public range 2) birth control 3) stop domestic horse overbreeding, making adoptions more likely 4) stop native predator eradication 5) sanctuary
Kate: " maybe it's time that we all became a little repulsed with the lack of dignity and respect shown to the animals we eat on a daily basis."
I agree (but I would say "a lot repulsed"). However, horses are no more intelligent than pigs, a billion-plus who suffer in this nation's factory farms. Intelligence shouldn't be the standard for who gets killed--sentience should. Jeremy Bentham (born 1748) famously said, "The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?"
BTW, if you dare, you can watch horse-eater Sappington (whom Ari mistakenly identifies as the owner of Valley Meat) execute his horse (both edited and unedited versions are available) at the aforementioned link to "A Tale of Two Horses." Bon appetit.
