Animal Law Coalition
Write, call, fax or email Illinois legislators and urge them
to vote no on H.B. 4812. This legislation would repeal a ban on
horse slaughter and would allow for the reopening of a horse
slaughterhouse in Illinois. Please be polite!
Illinois Representatives here. Call, write or fax as many as
you can. If you live in Illinois, be sure to tell your
representative that you live in his or her district.
