R CALF Guardedly Optimistic Over Court Decision On Horse Slaughter

R CALF Guardedly Optimistic Over Court Decision On Horse Slaughter

 

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court in Denver has thrown out an injunction on Horse Slaughter brought forward by HSUS and Activist groups. R CALF is pleased with the ruling but is concerned whether slaughter will go forward as it should. R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says there could be further attacks by the activist groups going forward.

Bullard says one of the problems is that activist groups have continually gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent USDA from doing the inspections necessary for horse slaughter to proceed. He says the agency has also dragged its feet.

Bullard says another problem is that both Canada and Mexico allow for horse slaughter but Mexico doesn’t have slaughtering standards that are as humane as in the United States.
