    Default Oklahoma allows horse slaughter

    Just saw a blurb in a news feed. Sorry I can't post a link. But in essence it said OK will allow horse slaughter for meat. Anyone else heard this?

    Someone - can't remember who - said it was the lesser of 2 evils.

    Anyone who is against slaughter is free to choose alternative methods

    Having read the U.S. rules for disposal of a carcass that has been euthanized due to possible poisoning of endangered species i.e. bald eagle..the fines are up to $50,000 per eagle AND your vet can also be charged it is going to be very expensive.

    On that U.S. website they are also against all rendering due to their claims that the poison can still impact other animals. They were against burial as the animal can be exposed so incineration appears to be THEIR choice. and THAT is expensive.

    Water conservation groups are removing choices as to burial on private property.

    So, Slaughter MAY be an option

    Again..if you are against it...most certainly don't use it.

    As long as it's done correctly it really doesn't matter.

    Because her family owns the largest horse auction in the state from which the majority of horses are sent to slaughter.

    I'll be fascinated to see how much the local rate of horse theft increases now.

    The bill won't be law until Nov 1st. and there is no horse slaughter plant in OK at this time.

    Let's see if Sue Wallis will be visiting OK next.
