Nebraska Politicians Paving Way to Return Horse Slaughter to U.S. Soil

[Ed. Note: Also read Summit of the Horse Nothing More than a Horse Slaughter Convention.]

From Int'l Fund for Horses
January 2011

Following the Summit of the Horse, here are the first fruits we have seen emerge from the pro slaughter convention is Las Vegas.

Both of these bills are horrific. The slaughter bill, Nebraska State Bill LB 305, if successful, would condemn horses without homes, through no fault of their own, to a grisly and terrifying death in a slaughterhouse. Nebraska State Bill LB 306, if successful, would subject any horse shelter or sanctuary refusing to take in a homeless horse to criminal prosecution.

Both bills were introduced by Nebraska State Sen. Tyson Larson who spoke at the Summit of the Horse conference in Las Vegas where participants tried to develop a strategy for reopening plants at the federal level.
