Amendment Tries to End Horse Transport for Slaughter

An amendment to HR 3684, an infrastructure bill, would ban the transportation of horses across state lines or to Canada or Mexico for slaughter for human consumption, according to a news release by Animal Wellness Action.

The measure follows reports of ‘horse laundering‘ associated with the government’s adoption incentive program.

A related bill, the SAFE Act, has been stymied by agriculture interests and pro-slaughter members of Congress.
