[RC] Kill sales illegal? - Karen Everhart

No - kill sales ARE NOT illegal.  Over 124,000 horses were purchased by kill buyers and hauled to Mexico or Canada for slaughter in 2008.  We know there were more, hauled across the borders under the guise of being polo ponies or saddle horses, actually going to slaughter.  We just don't have those numbers due to the deceit involved.
