    Default statistics on number of horses slaughtered

    Is there a place to find the number of horses slaughtered each year for the last decade?

    Thank you.

    Here's one page that makes for an overview by year:

    The General Accounting Office did a study on it recently:
    Full report:

    I don't know what you need the info for, but there is related information, studies, FOIA documents, and more on this site:

    One of the horse mags, I think it is THe Horse, but I could be mistaken as I subscribe to several magazines, publishs the # of horses shipped each year to Canada for slaughter. I guess there is some kind of accounting at the border or at the auction houses. Anyhow, it's close to 20,000 a year. I don't know the figures for Mexico. I have seen the articles in The Horse magazine showing the pictures of the downers and the volunteers who try to take care of them till they are slaughtered. Humane is a dirty word to those who've seen what happens to the horses before they are killed.

    Thanks for the links and for the suggestion - I may look at The Horse, too.
