Hu­mane horse killing

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

UN­LESS we are pre­pared to ban all horse sports, from gymkhanas and rid­ing schools to showjump­ing and polo, and un­less we are pre­pared to make sure no horse meat ever goes into any pet food, then horses will con­tinue to go to abat­toirs. I pre­fer to see horses hu­manely killed than left old, sick, ne­glected or un­wanted. So surely the an­swer is for all fa­cil­i­ties which slaugh­ter live­stock, horses in­cluded, to be reg­u­larly and rig­or­ously in­spected?
