Bodega Meadows Horse Sanctuary
Although horse slaughter facilities have closed down in the U.S., horses are still being exported to other countries for slaughter. Every year, anywhere from 80,000 to 137,000 American horses are hauled over the U.S. border to be slaughter for human consumption. They are shipped in overcrowded trailers without food or water, for over 24 hours at a time. Most often, their death is tragic and inhumane.
