Howling Ridge Radio Created & Hosted by Ellen-Cathryn Nash with Vicki Tobin, Karen Kennedy & Amanda Sorvino

There are several internet radio programs regarding horse slaughter. One of them is Agritalk Radio which claims to be the 'voice of rural America.' If, in fact, Agritalk is indeed the 'voice of rural America' nobody should go there.

Agritalk interviewed Jim Sacia from Illinois who is attempting to repeal the Illinois state bill that banned horse slaughter. He states he is a horse lover and that slaughter is humane. He wants to keep horse slaughter in the United States because of the revenues the State of Illinois would gain. Next, in this episode from March 4, 2009, they discuss the animal welfare advocates as 'Extremists' who are attacking the global food chain.

Manes and Tails Organization has set up our own radio show. We will tell the truth, 'out' all of the liars and cheats, name names and force the USDA to enforce the Humane Slaughter Act of 1958 by engendering public outrage. Due to the stipulations of this now 51 year old Federal statute, there is absolutely no method of slaughtering a horse, pony, foal, donkey or mule that can ever comply with the statute. This means it is a violation of a Federal statute to slaughter a horse, or his cousins, for any purpose whatsoever. Simply put, it is illegal and has been for 51 years. Yes, as horse rescuers, we have sound ideas about the overpopulation of particular breeds including American Quarterhorses and Thoroughbreds and what must be done about that. We will dicuss this on our own program.
