    Do we need another sign that humanity is devolving?

    Meh... we eat cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, lambs,
    buffalo, deer, etc so why should a horse be so taboo?

    This would obviously be for export, so if some savages want to pay us to eat our horses, I say let them.

    Might as well. Dogs are sacred, sitting is an activity, and eating is constant.

    In my book civilized society needs to draw the line somewhere and intelligence should play a key role in defining that line. Horses are smart. Smarter than any of the animals mentioned and smarter than any fucking cat or ferret or iguana.

    But maybe that's just me.

    Any animal can be trained to the point it looks smart.
    Hardly a qualifier as to whether I'll eat it.

    When they banned slaughter a few years ago, people couldn't afford to keep the old and sick and lame horses that had previously been sent to slaughter. What to do? Some let them starve to death. They dumped them on National Forest and BLM lands to help destroy the landscape. They sneaked them into unlocked private pastures and corrals on moonless nights. I even heard of a few cases of ranchers coming out of the livestock sale arena to find strange horses loaded into their stock trailers.

    Now they once again will be able to send them off to a humane slaughter so the various savages can have tasty meals.

    This will piss off the 'horse chicks' that dwell all around here. Every other house out in the sticks is a horse ranch, where the guy that owns it is a doctor and his bored wife fancies herself a horseman. It's like some sort of lesbo tribe, but without all the rug munching. They all drive gigantic pickup trucks with 'I <3 Horses!' bumper stickers. They all run horse rescue operations and are on occasion jailed for sending death threats to the local horse buyer that sends Mr. Ed and his friends to the dog food factory.

    Swine are on the upper end of animal intelligence, your point is invalid

    They'll eat until their stomachs rupture, they are not exactly geniuses.

    So a horse is a dumb as a $.10 goldfish. Take that horse lovers, your beloved animals are as bright as bait.

    They are somewhat intelligent (more so that a goldfish) but I just don't think intelligence should be the line we draw on what is OK to eat.

    Hey, my kitty comes when he is called, plays fetch and awoke my wife when the neighbor managed to set his deck on fire when he stupidly let a charcoal grill smolder on it, after he went to bed. Even my dog was sound asleep for that. The cat was on his usual night patrol of the house and must have caught a wiff or saw the flames out of my rear picture window.

    Agreed. I really don't care to eat stupid people. Though we'd never starve.

    If we actively hunted and ate stupid people think of how dull the internet videos would get. Who here doesn't enjoy a moron redneck setting himself on fire to celebrate his birthday? He'd be chops and livers if we started eating stupid people.

    Eating a horse was so taboo because they had other value as an animal. That's not so much the case these days. I would never eat one, but don't really have a moral stance against the practice.

    I don't dig on swine.

    And humans knowingly shorten their lives with fatty foods, tobacco, alcohol, cocaine, heroin and meth all the time. They also jump out of perfectly good airplanes and crawl around in deep, undersea caves. Your point...

    This begs the question... Would any of you horse-eaters chow down on some dog or cat? How about some dolphin? Or even ape, chimp, or gorilla?

    I'd eat just about anything you put on a plate in front of me granted it was meat, not rotten, and smelled alright. The only caveat is that I don't necessarily condone the killing of the animal specifically for my dining. If it was already killed and someone cooked it up, then fair game.

    Oh, and it can't be one of those AIDS monkeys or whatever.
