    I don`t even know how to score that video.
    It kept my attention, I wasn`t bored.
    It delivered what was promised.
    But somehow, a high score seems like an endorsement.

    I don`t see what the big deal is. He slaughters horses for the meat, same as we do with cows and chickens. It was humane. Possibly a bit tasteless on his part for recording it. I`m sure it really pissed off the protesters that are bothering him, which was his point.

    It`s all livestock, I`m from NM and they`re just food. Good food at that. :)

    Did not watch.

    I`m glad you warned us @kitteh9, thx.

    I don`t WANT to watch critters being slaughtered! I know that`s how food is made, but I`m a "city boy" and (aside from fish) am too tender-hearted to see how it`s done...

    No reason to waste good horse flesh.
    I hope it was for meat and leather, not just wasted.
    Or maybe it was ill and had to be put down anyway.
    I just hope it wasn`t a stupid waste.

    I`m guessing the horse needed to be put down anyway, so he thought he`d get some mileage out of it.

    Quick and painless, It`s the way I`d want to go.
    No different from killing a cow, in fact I can taste-ify that horse tastes better than beef.
    The story says he ate it too.

    I don`t understand the controversy.
    The horse probably needed to be put down anyway, they hurt themselves ridiculously easily, and their legs are often impossible to fix.

    That was really humane. I applaud him for such a quick death.

    The horse was fully used as well. Nothing wrong.

    Horse merchants are often times complete non-nice individuals that don`t give a poo about the wellbeing of their `merchandise`. To them they are just money with legs.

    "I don`t see what the big deal is. He slaughters horses for the meat, same as we do with cows and chickens. It was humane. Possibly a bit tasteless on his part for recording it. I`m sure it really pissed off the protesters that are bothering him, which was his point."

    It is provocative and an open threat. I`m sure there will be legal action against him.

    Oh come on guys. Never seen a cow get killed with a bolt gun before? No?.. Maybe i`m more of a hillbilly than i care to admit.

    Anyway, he hit him square in the brainstem. It was dead before it hit the ground. i`m guessing he had some other motivation for killing that horse other than proving a point towards animal rights activists. It looked pretty old to me. No one kills a perfectly good horse for no reason.

    To some degree i actually sympathize with the whole "they can go drat themselves" attitude. They really are an ignorant bunch.

    skimmed the article. Yeah, they can go fu.ck themselves. The man is trying to open an honest buisness, and they are trying to shut him down before he even gets started because "horsies are magical special creatures"..

    It`s not the act here--especially if he`s going to use the meat and other products--it`s the inflammatory attitude. And, sure, we all have a right to speak our minds. Do we all have a right to kill animals as props for our political vitriol? Is that free speech? I have a feeling not. Regardless the use, to me, that`s where he ran afoul of, if not the law, moral decency. I wouldn`t piss on that guy if he was burning alive

    This is freaking awful! That horse knew and trusted that man. I hate that I watched that, even though I knew what it would be. Humans are pretty terrible, myself included.

    I have no problem with eating horse meat (which is just as well considering.). I have no problem with a well-regulated and humane abbatoir.How else would I get my bacon?

    However killing an animal as a debating technique does mark this guy as a freaking psycho. It`s on a par with thinking that an appropriate way to debate islam would be to throw a pig`s head at a mosque. Even if the pig had been humanely slaughtered.

    If there is an attempt at opening a legitimate well regulated business and it`s meeting resistance then swaying public opinion is going to be important. I suspect this is going to be counter-productive.

    `Yes, our proposed business will be well-run, responsible, compliant with all regulations and run on humane principles. We are reputable business people and to prove it I pull out a gun and shoot something in the head because DON`T drat WITH ME.`

    If we are to eat meat ( which as humans we do) we must kill. I know a few vegans who will argue all sorts of stuff, but mostly it is the cruelty involved that bother people- a decent, natural life with a quick death is as much as any one of us could hope for. However- stunts like this do not prove a thing, they just push forward the idea that those who slaughter are psychos.
