for Human Consumption
is a CRIME in
Representative Betty Brown has her way,
will become the horse slaughter capitol of the
Perhaps if Betty
Brown knew the REAL TRUTH about Horse Slaughter in
, she would change her mind…..
Betty, the truth is...Dallas Crown, the horse slaughter plant in
Kaufman, is one of only two horse slaughter plants in the entire
The other is Beltex in
truth is...Dallas Crown is owned by a French company and Beltex
by a Belgian company and all profits from horse slaughter in
go to those foreign companies.
truth is...All horsemeat produced at these slaughter
plants is sent to
In other words, they are killing our horses to feed the French,
Belgians, Germans and Japanese. A
French horsemeat butcher was quoted in The International Herald of
Taste as saying: “I only buy American meat, which is red and firm.
In butchering terms we call it ‘well-structured’, the best you
can get. Out of a thousand
animals, only the American ones are really worth buying.
But they don’t eat horsemeat in
They raise horses for foreigners.”
Betty, the truth is...The horses slaughtered at Dallas Crown are
not old, sick or lame horses but, instead, are young, healthy American
horses bought by killer buyers who attend horse auctions where they
compete with families and horse brokers looking for good, sound horses.
the truth is...Last year these plants slaughtered 42,312 horses
by slitting the throats of young American horses brought to them by killer
buyers. Last year their sales
exceeded $40,000,000. Thus,
the French and Belgians are
making millions slaughtering our horses.
Betty, the truth is...The Texas Attorney General has ruled that
the sale of horsemeat for human consumption is a criminal offense.
In other words, these horse slaughter plants that kill thousands
of American horses to satisfy the palates of the French, Belgians,
Germans and Japanese and make millions of dollars for the French and Belgians are illegal!

August 7, 2002
or not Betty Brown is ready for the truth, if you are outraged by the
senseless slaughter of young healthy horses… if you are outraged that
they have their throats slit while still alive so their hearts can pump
the blood from their bodies… there is something you can do.
