Plea from a Town Councillor «Stop Horse Slaughter»

A Town Councillor from the Mourão Municipality in Brasil, Mr. Isidoro Moraes has appealed to the Federal Government, that the slaughter of horses be banned from the state. According to the Councillor there are abattoirs that slaughter horses, which in a way is an incentive to theft, especially in the small rural farms.

According to Mr. Moraes there are no local facilities breeding horses for slaugther purposes. As there are no facilities, the theft of horses becomes an incentive, as the horse is docile and an easy prey to thieves.

«These animals which we cherish, become worthless for horse thieves selling them to abattoirs for 100/150€ a head» he claims.
