That horrific, but i suppose sometimes it has to be done - I just wish they'd do it a whole lot more nicely! Couldn't you just kill those people! x

Its murdur.How would you like it if a horse captured you and put you in a little square, and shoot you, and hang you up on string!

I'm not gonna watch it for two reasons.

1. I am only 11 and youtube flagged it as an 18

2. I can barely watch Vet School, let alone see/hear about a horse being inhumanely killed for no reason!

It sounds sick.....What kind of a person would dream of being a horse murderer?

I think that's really mature of you izzymcq. 

It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.

I can't watch it either Izzy and i'm 49 !! I know that It would really play on my mind and upset me for weeks, so you've made the right decision. Sadly there is so much cruelty and suffering going on, I certainly don't bury my head in the sand but i just can't bare to watch horrific video's anymore.

This is extremely saddening but unfortunately both of those videos offer only a taster of the true treatment of horses in abbatoirs. I have done a lot of research and campaigning for their cause, but find it ironic how people can be so disgusted by this treatment of horses when it is either widely unknown or readily accepted that cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and dogs etc (for the leather ans fur indistries) experience far, far worse treatment.

What that second video does not show is what happend behind the scenes. Without wishing to go into graphic detail, animals of all species that enter slaughterhouses are starved and dehydtrated, beaten, trample each other in tiny enclosures, usually bled whilst still alive, and not uncommonly even when their conscious. This all happens in UK abbatoirs and are the norm in countries abroad where animals from the UK are often shipped when theiy don't meet UK abbatoir standards.

It isn't really the shooting of the horses in the videos that I have a problem with - I don't like it, but if it is done correctly (and not with a rifle!) then it can be as quick and painless as possible, almost instantaneous. Yes, we kill animals for their meat, fur, skins, milk etc - but is it really necessary to do so in such a way?

:(
