CALL-TO-ACTION! Just three weeks left to sign this Government of Canada e-petition calling for a stop to live air transport of horses for human consumption. The petition is sponsored by Beaches-East York Liberal MP, Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, and closes on June 19.
👉 SIGN THE PETITION:
BACKGROUND INFO: In 2018, over 7,000 horses were air shipped from Canada to Japan for slaughter for human consumption.
Up to 3 to 4 horses are loaded into crates smaller than a single horse stall, frequently in contravention of Health of Animals Regulations and International Air Transport Association (IATA) standards.
Further, these beings are having to endure flights that are 10.5 to 13.5 hours long, during which time (and for the additional hours spent for ground transportation, loading into crates, and loading and unloading crates from planes), they have no access to food or water. Please help. This needs to stop.
