Jane Velez MitchellThe 2014 American Equine Summit, held on Saturday, April 26th and Sunday, April 27th at Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary in Chatham, NY, brought out a record crowd to hear distinguished experts from North America talk about the need for a permanent ban on horse slaughter in the U.S. and shipping American horses into Canada or Mexico for the purpose of slaughter.

Jane Velez-Mitchell, veteran television news journalist and best-selling author, kicked off the Summit with a rousing Keynote Address about the need for a “global fight” against horse slaughter and the use of “double-speak” where the U.S. government is concerned about wild horses and burros.

Victoria McCullough, international equestrian, philanthropist and owner of Chesapeake Petroleum, spoke about the legal and logical arguments to win the end of horse slaughter. McCullough has been instrumental in getting slaughterhouses defunded in the U.S. and affirmed the current administration’s concern over food safety. She pointed out a “global initiative for food safety” and how the U.S. must focus on getting Canada and Europe on board with removing equines from the food chain.
