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!

Should moving to the country at Wymonig, Uath, Oklmonka, Iowa, Utah and Montana and sell instead kill horse' meat, too sick because their good health.

This law needs to be passed in all states to be really effective. CA. has had the law since 1998, and no one enforces since the horses are sent from an auction to a feedlot or another out of state auction. Enforcement is lacking once a bill is passed. It helps show that N.J. will be anti horse slaughter to show our lame reps in DC we do not want horse slaughter. All states NEED this law.. horses are just taken out of state and on to slaughter.

I believe the governor has signed the bill!! Now for the rest of the states to join in..

I grown up a small farm with a bull, cow, chickens, and 2 horse. Should not kill the horse for eating a meat, no way as normal kill the bull or cow for making a meat. I was upset in East Canada to eat a meat of Horse during cow was freeze no selling meats for 2 months then return a normal to eat cow,s meats.
A reason horses always work a hard job or race for people than cows.
