A slaughterhouse in New Mexico is preparing to slaughter horses within the next few weeks and other states, including Nevada and Wyoming, are also showing interest in opening horse slaughterhouses.
INFORMATION / TALKING POINTSOklahoma Governor Mary Fallin set an ugly precedent this week by signing a bill legalizing horse slaughter in that state for the first time in 50 years. IDA members urged legislators to vote against the measure and pleaded with the Governor to veto the bill.
While this is bad news, federal legislation is under consideration to ban all horse slaughter in the United States, and to ban exporting horses to other countries to be slaughtered for human consumption.
