An Argument For Horse Slaughterhouses in Texas

horse.jpgIt's gotta take some cojones to write an article in our horses-as-pets-loving society advocating for the revival of horse slaughterhouses in Texas. But Katharine Shilcutt, food critic for the Houston Press has done just that. Among her arguments are the fact that Mexico and Canada still do it, and get good money for Mr. Ed meat. So why not Texas, the former "home base of horse abattoirs in the U.S."? Call us meat-loving hypocrites, but we just can't get behind the thought of eating Black Beauty for dinner. [EOW]
