In spite of the law suit filed last month by Cavel (horse slaughter plant in Illinois) a federal judge ruled in favor of an Illinois state law banning the production or possession of horse meat for human consumption, effectively putting Cavel out of business. Still, Cavel is considering an appeal of the judge’s order.

While the slaughter of horses for human consumption seems to be reaching a definite end in the US, billions of farmed animals still suffer horror and pain in factory farms and slaughter houses every year. The transition to a plant-based diet would help extend Christ’s compassion, love and justice to God’s animals killed for their flesh.

***Update on Cavel Horse Slaughter Plant: A sustaining member informed us that the Federal Appeals Court judge allowed Cavel to reopen while its appeal is pending. Apparently the Belgium company that owns the plant is making use of every legal resort possible. A Federal ban on horse slaughter and the bill still waiting to be voted on in Washington are much needed.
