Foes of horse slaughter cheer Congressional victory

Posted By on Wed, Jun 20, 2012 at 7:02 AM

Blog reader Raymond Williams encourages a link to this news — a successful effort in Congress, over the objections of the Farm Bureau, not to fund USDA inspections of horse slaughter facilities. This effectively makes horse slaughtering in the U.S. impossible.

Williams, who lives in rural Pulaski County, operates a useful blog on the issue, Stop Horse Slaughter.

Farm Bureau: They'd slaughter horses and allow pollution of Lake Maumelle. And came slowly and grudgingly to animal cruelty legislation. And espouse individual liberty to pollute while grasping for taxpayer subsidies. Will their lobbying control the county governing body of the state's most urban county on the Maumelle issue? It's beginning to look ominous.
