CANA Foundation Urges US Citizens to Contact Their Congressional Representatives Regarding the Protection of 55,000 Wild Horses Being Held Captive

The U.S. House Appropriations Committee voted on Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 on an amendment that would prevent the slaughter of horses for human consumption on U.S. soil. The amendment is to the agriculture appropriations bill that bars spending by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to inspect horse slaughterhouses and was offered by Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D – CA, and Charlie Dent, R – PA. The vote to defund inspections for slaughterhouses that would slaughter our nation’s horses, failed by a vote of 25-27. This means that taxpayer dollars can now be used to fund the inspections of these slaughterhouses.
