During the next few months, the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition (CHDC) will be releasing information obtained from Canada’s Access to Information Act. It is important to note that information requested under this Act is neither complete nor timely.

The first report concerns an at-term mare who foaled on a truck en route to the LPN slaughter plant in March 2011. This disturbing report can be read here.
