Horse Slaughter Ban Succeeds!

Update! Horses Safe From Slaughter for 2006! Great news!

The ASPCA has stated the following, `The Horse Slaughter Amendment to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill was approved by the Agricultural Appropriations Conference Committee! That means that no federal tax dollars will be used in 2006 to fund USDA inspections of slaughterhouses that slaughter horses. Without USDA inspections, slaughter plants are prohibited from slaughtering animals for human consumption. The effect of this landmark amendment is to prohibit horse slaughter in the United States for fiscal year 2006. This will give us valuable time to work towards passage of legislation permanently banning horse slaughter in the United States.'
