HOUSTON, (Horseback) – A Denver appellate court has continued a federal ban on horse slaughter after a New Mexico judge said it could go ahead. A small slaughterhouse near Roswell was set to open its doors after Judge Christina Armijo lifted a temporary restraining order she had issued earlier. The TRO had been sought on environmental grounds by the Humane Society of the United States. HSUS immediately appealed to Denver’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    It was interesting reading covering the ban on Horse slaughter being invoked by the court. What is just as interesting is those few in the USDA who may have an interest in seeing the continuation of this barbaric and corrupt industry. Perhaps those few have the same interests as comprimised politicans who have two sources of income, one from the tax payer and more importantly one from the Horse slaughter lobby. This is exactly what is taking place in Canada. When it is confirmed that 80% of the US PUBLIC and over 68% of the Canadian PUBLIC are clearly opposed to this barbaric corrupt industry and it continues it says something about DEMORACY.
