South Dakota Horse Slaughter Proponent Pleased Court Case Advancing

South Dakota Horse Slaughter Proponent Pleased Court Case Advancing

Parties on both sides of the horse slaughter case want a decision as quickly as possible. Government Attorneys representing USDA say it’s time to end the court battle that has temporarily banned horse slaughter in the U.S.  South Dakota horse slaughter advocate and livestock producer Bob Mack thinks if they can move the court case in New Mexico forward quickly that will be beneficial.

Mack says there needs to be a proper way to deal with unwanted and neglected horses and all sides involved in the debate need to be at the table coming up with viable solutions.

Both sides in the New Mexico court case think it would be good if the Judge could get all facets of the case by early October.
