Dear Friends,

I am sure that you still remember Animals’ Angels 2012 investigation at the Southwest Livestock Auction in Los Lunas, NM.

Animals’ Angels USA Exposes the Truth of Horse Slaughter

In a global campaign, Animals’ Angels Inc. (AA USA) and our European Ally Tierschutzbund Zürich (TSB) have gathered extensive information about the horse slaughter industry.

Evidence obtained through investigations conducted throughout 2012 proves that horse meat imported from Canada, Argentina and Mexico and sold in Switzerland was produced in violation of EU as well as Swiss animal welfare standards. Additionally, we were able to prove that labels on packaged meat throughout Switzerland contain false information and that contrary to the claims of importers and distributors, the horses are not transported, cared for and slaughtered according to EU and Swiss standards.
