Elkhart Horse Auction Inhumane conditions for horses at auction Elkhart, Texas
Sale is every Saturday night. I've heard local sheriff looks the other way when cruelty complaints are made.
Something needs to be done. Horses,mules,ponies and foals are not only suffering but dying. They just drag them to the kill buyer trailers (kill buyers buy horses to take to Mexico slaughter, look up Mexico horse slaughter on youtube also Canadian horse slaughter) . Kill buyers buy horse,mules,ponies and foals, healthy, pregnant or malnourished. There seems to be a connection between the auctioneer/auction house and kill buyers. The conditions where these animals are kept with no water in 100' temperature is so inhumane. Holding pens had containers for water but all were dry. The teenage boys constantly hit the horses in the face and body to force the scared animals to the auction ring.
I don't understand how Humane Societies can look the other way. I know this is a small town and the sale is held at night, but maybe whom ever reads this will be moved to go to the auction and walk around back and look at the holding pens. Thank you.
