Horse slaughter

December 1, 2013 • Dear Editor

Dear Editor,
Has any[auth] one noticed the correlation between the flooded housing market in Roswell to the talk of opening a horse slaughterhouse? The more they talk about this, the more houses appear on the market every day. Businesses are closing, and crime is on the increase. Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I can’t see how this negative exposure is supposed to be good for our economy.
Some legislators have said that there will not be money in the budget for meat inspectors for horse slaughterhouse would be a more humane way for neglected and starving horses to end their life like some kind of animal control. Well then, bring sick and starving horses to the slaughterhouse and throw in the poor, run down horses that have been pumped full of steroids from illegal horse racing that exists in Chaves County. Also, maybe a warning should accompany the meat stating that consuming horse meat may be hazardous to your health.
