Award Winning Film About Horses Awakens Moral Fabric Of Humanity
The public is being misled by special interests that are pushing to expand a foreign market for horsemeat inside the U.S. The cover up involves toxic health risks to humans on a global level, economic and environmental devastation, and criminal animal cruelty.
Wild for Life Foundation is breaking the cycle of animal cruelty for America’s horses through our educational film project, ‘Saving America’s Horses’, a life changing resource that cultivates action and inspires social change. ‘Saving America’s Horses’ is sweeping the festival circuit, playing to packed houses and winning multiple international awards including Best in Festival / Best Documentary Film at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival and the RBC Best Environmental Film Award at Film North International Film Festival in Canada.
‘No film in this year’s program has moved and impacted on the audience more. Saving America’s Horses brings the plight of an endangered species to the forefront of awareness. Morally, intellectually and environmentally, mankind is obliged to evolve in the direction of preserving the equine. We congratulate and salute Katia and her dedicated team for championing and persevering this worthy cause in the face of horrendous obstacles,’ — Lucy Molnar Wing Film North Huntsville International Film Festival.
‘Saving America’s Horses’ also won the International Accolade Merit Award for Advocacy, Visuals, and Investigative Journalism, and was awarded for cinematography, advocacy, editing, and conservation message at the International Wildlife Film Festival. It also received the highest 5 star votes at the AMC Kansas City Film Festival.
“One cannot watch the gripping documentary film Saving America’s Horses and walk away unchanged. It commands the viewer’s attention from the very beginning and holds it captive to the credits. This film is a must see.” —Joy Aten, Rescue Specialist, former BOD Canter MI.
What many people don’t realize is that the slaughter of America’s horses is driven by a foreign market for horsemeat. And though we as Americans don’t eat our horses, foreign consumers of horsemeat are not made aware of the associated health risks directly related to toxic substances we routinely administer to our horses; substances that can be lethal when ingested by humans, and many of which have been banned from the human food chain in most countries.
Per USDA findings, 92% of the equines sent to slaughter are sound, young and healthy. The average age for an American horse sent to slaughter is 3-7 years old. Horse slaughter plants are foreign owned and operated and this spells colossal disaster for the towns they take over and the local government officials who are left to deal with its economic and environmental devastation.
Substantial evidence shows increased toxic pollution and groundwater contamination in the communities where slaughterhouses once operated. Direct correlations on crime statistics reveal the impact of the increased traffic flow of felons and migrant workers that pursue this type of industry.
Wild for Life Foundation is dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving equines. Through our awareness campaign, we strive to break the cycle of animal cruelty for America’s horses by educating, engaging and empowering the public to effect social change.
