It's out the National Geographic article on the Mustangs...
Dear Christy,
I am a writer for National Geographic Magazine writing about wild horses for an April '09 issue.  I have been lookng EVERYWHERE for proof that mustangs have been and are getting sent to slaughter & finally, here you are!  The BLM acknowledges the scandal of the Clavel Slaughterhouse when 41 BLM Sales Authority  horses were sent to slaughter but they deny that there are any other horses that have met this fate (they claimed they contacted DOMESTIC slsughter houses to prevent this from ever happening again).  It looks as if you have evidence that the horses were sent to Canda though, at least in 2005. Please call or email any time.
Best, Alexandra Fuller

Animal Rescue League Watch It Now!

5-12-08  HBO investigates horse slaughter - casual horse racing fans are aware that many former racing horses are slaughtered for profit. When a thoroughbred race horse reaches the end of its career or is simply no longer profitable on the track, it is often taken directly to auction and sold for meat. Because horse slaughter is no longer practiced in this country, these thoroughbreds are now being shipped by "killer buyers" to slaughterhouses abroad, which are frequently less regulated and less humane than former U.S. slaughterhouses. Correspondent Bernard Goldberg, who recently won the 2008 Sports Emmy(r) for Outstanding Sports Journalism for his 2007 REAL SPORTS story on the NFL concussion crisis, traces the disturbing journey many of these young and healthy horses take from the track, to auctions, to slaughterhouses, and finally to the plates of European and Japanese diners who pay top dollar for the delicacy.

 Susan wrote- "What isn't clear is if the horses are truly in imminent danger or if they are being selected and sold on the basis of whether they can make money for the organization, not whether they are the most needy. Also, what happens to the horses that have no one to pay their "bail," as the organization calls it? What becomes of them?"

Well, (click) here they were tagged and shipped - after this article was written does that answer your question Susan? The horses were lost to slaughter.
