Napes you are taking the thread off course......bit like Gintara.
I have no objection to horse meat being exported.
If the horse meat is being sourced from what looked like thoroughbred yearlings, among other untried young horses in the pens at Meramist....well that is a problem......it's not ok.
Not only is it a breach of RNSW welfare rules it would offend most racing folk.
RNSW have a surrender policy
.....the truck that delivered these youngsters to Meramist, fromYass in NSW drove straight passed the the Mudgee turnoff where RNSW have a 2000 or so acre racehorse retirement property......does anybody know if it is yet functioning?
Slaughtered humanely????.....are you aware that the first standard for horse slaughter is that horses shouldn't witness the killing......ok with this????
Meramist didn't even meet the first standard......why does it take the ABC to bring about change in this regard.
No one from the racing industry think about having a bit of a check or is it just easier to pretend it isn't happening.
Sadly, it's views like yours that make horse racing completely unpalatable to many and with so many powerful consumer groups out there .......sponsors will run a mile!
