Horsemeat Sausages

The Justice League have been reading 'Horsemeat Sausages' by Jane Buxton. In the story a man makes a joke about Irish Moss the racehorse being turned into sausages. We thought about whether or not butchers should make sausages from horsemeat. You may be surprised by what some of the group thought. Do you agree with them?



Butchers should make sausages out of horses

I agree with this statement because we already eat pigs, cows, chickens and other animals so there is no difference eating a horse. Also there are lots of horses that could be used for food whereas the other animals we eat may run out in the future.

Some people may argue though that we shouldn't eat horses because some horses are very important such as Irish Moss who was a racehorse. Another reason why people may argue against eating horses is that horses are very tame animals and very beautiful so they shouldn’t be eaten.

Overall though I believe that we should eat horses because I think it would be adventurous to try something different, Horses do lots of exercise so it will be healthier because it will have less fat. Also people may get used to eating horsemeat sausages in the future.

Butchers should make sausages out of horses

I disagree with this statement because horses are very important, such as Irish Moss who was a racehorse, and should not be eaten. Other horses are precious too, for example in the olden days they helped harvest crops and were used for transport. Also if you eat an unhealthy horse it might have a disease that could make you sick.

Some people may argue that people should eat horses because they do lots of exercise so they would have less fat and more meat. Also people may think it would be very adventurous to eat a horse.   

Overall though, I believe that we shouldn’t eat horses because in the future there may not be any left for us to enjoy. Also if you didn’t eat them they may be able to help us in the future, for example as transport meaning there would be no more pollution or loss of clean air.

I agree with this statement because we have eaten cows, pigs, chickens and other animals so what’s the difference with horse meat. Also horses do a lot of exercise so they will have less fat and would probably be good for you.

Some people may argue though that we should not eat horsemeat because some horses may have diseases that could cause death if they are eaten.

Overall though I believe that we should eat horsemeat sausages because it would be healthier, it is no different from eating other animals and it would be adventurous to eat different kinds of meat.
