Springsteen Daughter’s Appeal to Gov. Christie: Sign Horse Slaughter Ban!

Back in June, the New Jersey Legislature overwhelmingly passed a bill to prohibit the slaughter, transport, and sale of horses for human consumption within the state. Unfortunately, Governor Chris Christie has not yet signed the bill into law, and it’s not clear that he intends to.

With the clock ticking, several prominent New Jersey horse owners, equestrians and animal advocates, including Jessica Springsteen—daughter of Bruce—have sent a letter to Governor Chris Christie urging him to approve the horse slaughter ban. Christie is famously a huge Bruce Springsteen fan: Will a direct plea from The Boss’s daughter move him to finally act?

Americans don’t eat horse meat (it is shipped overseas), and 80% of American voters are opposed to the slaughter of U.S. horses for human consumption. What are you waiting for, Governor Christie?

See our latest press release to read a portion of the letter to the governor and learn more about New Jersey’s pending horse slaughter ban. And if you live in New Jersey, we urge you to send your own letter to the governor—visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to get started!

If you've ever saw a child play and watch their innocence then you can understand why I'm writing this. Children and animals are almost identical. They both only know what we teach or treat them like. The only real difference is that animals were here first before us. Especially wild animals defeat the nature part of their impacted life alone, let alone what space we take from them or how we take care of nature. We all take advantage alot more than giving more effort to help than hinder. Hunting is needed for over population of other animals but domestic animals we have some control with procreation. There is plenty of food in this world and most times probably alot wasted where some could use. No need for not signing and passing this law. Thank you
