Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue
Anti Horse Slaughter Billboards
Glenville, PA - Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue (www.saveahorsenow.org) is pleased to announce that the newest billboard in their campaign to educate the U.S. public about horse slaughter has gone up in Oklahoma City, OK. The billboard guides the reader to its companion website www.stopslaughteringus.com which provides up to date factual information regarding horse slaughter.
According to the USDA, exactly 133,241 U.S. horses were sent to slaughter last year. These horses are transported to Mexico and Canada in double decker trailers for slaughter and the meat is shipped to Europe for human consumption. This board was sponsored by Simone Netherlands, Director of Respect 4 horses, in cooperation with the Documentary Saving Americas Horses and Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
“Good riddance,” says Simone Netherlands. “We collectively suggest that they take their deceptive name, their deceptive propaganda and their deceptive agenda far away and go pretend that they care about horses and horse people somewhere else.”
The interactive Summit of the Live Horse Press Conference will be broadcast on Ustream.tv, 12 noon CDT April 3, 2012. This is the link where you can log into the live broadcast: Ustream.tv/channel/Respect4Horses It will also be available at www.Respect4Horses.com
Jo Deibel, Founder and Director of Angel Acres, noted “We are thrilled to have this board sponsored by several boots on the ground horse advocates. All are working towards the common goal of exposing the dirty business of horse slaughter to the American public. No matter what pro slaughter folks call it i.e. rendering, processing, harvesting or whatever sanitized word they choose to use, Horse Slaughter Is NOT Humane Euthanasia.”
Acres Horse Haven Rescue is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit rescue located in Glenville, PA dedicated to saving horses bound for slaughter for human consumption.
