Butchering isn't horse welfare

PRINCESS Anne's comments that we should consider a trade in horsemeat have sparked debate.

The implication is that, by treating horses in the same way as other animals their welfare would be markedly improved.

Princess Anne is naive to think that horses would benefit from being passed through the meat trade. The best way to help animals is to adopt a meat-free diet.
