This story is from our friends working across the Canadian border, the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition (CHDC). While the Canadian Food Inspection Agency claims to “discourage” firearms use in horse slaughter, it ALLOWS it.
“When the first shot fails to render the horse unconscious, there is too long a span before the next shot is fired. I never witnessed anyone checking to ensure the horse was unconscious before being dumped out of the kill-box, which may lead to the horse being shackled, hung, and bled while still conscious.” – Mary Richardson, DVM
