Horse slaughter for meat is now illegal in Texas

Last week, a decision issued by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans made slaughtering horses for meat illegal in Texas, where two of the nation’s three processing plants are located. According to Vivian Farrell, President of Houston based Fund for Horses, "Closing the horse slaughter plants in Texas could save 50,000 to 60,000 equines from a brutal and terrifying death this year alone."

It’s good news for God’s Creation that horse slaughter for meat consumption is now illegal in Texas. More states should follow this example and extend their circle of compassion to all of God’s animals, who suffer pain and agony daily in factory farms and slaughter houses.
