Omnibus Budget Will End Chances of Horse Slaughter Plants Opening in US

CHICAGO, (EWA) – The omnibus bill pending before Congress this week contains language that will end the possibility of proposed horse slaughter plants opening in New Mexico and Missouri. The last three plants were closed in 2007 under state laws, and Congress had defunded required inspections which made it impossible for them to open in other states until 2011.

For Canada – There’s still work to do.  With your continued support and efforts in contacting your MP to tell them that you want to see horse slaughter ended here to, we can end slaughter here too!  Keep the petitions and postcards coming!

    I’m in the US and a member of Equine Welfare Alliance and from the news letter we are getting some help from congress. This is giving me some hope that if horse slaughter shipments from the US stops it will put the slaughter plants in both Canada and Mexico out of business. Neither country can supply the number of needed horses to keep the slaughter plants running at top speed like they are now. To stop all of this cruelty in all of North America is to pass the S.A.F.E. Act which are bills S.541 and H.R.1094. When that is done it just might give the Canadian government the incentive to stop horse slaughter too. I hope so.

    I AM SO GLAD THE US HAS CHANGED THE RULES RE HORSE SLAUGHTER. I HOPE THAT THEY WILL BE SUCCESSFUL IN CHANGING THE RULES RE HORSE EXPORT AS THIS IS JUST AS CRUEL IF NOT WORSE!!! HERE AT HOME IN CANADA, WE MUST GET LEGISLATION PUSHED THROUGH TO STOP HORSE SLAUGHTER OF ANY KIND AS WELL AS HORSE EXPORT. CANADIANS GENERALLY DO NOT EAT HORSE MEAT, SO IT IS THE EXPORT OF THIS THAT IS ANY SORT OF MONEY MAKER. IT MUST BE STOPPED. WE BUILT THIS COUNTRY ON THE BACK OF HORSES, AND THIS IS HOW WE THANK THEM!!!!!
