Anti-Slaughter Amendment Clears U.S. House

The measure, part of the HR 3684 infrastructure bill, bans the transport of equines across state lines or to Canada or Mexico for slaughter for human consumption, according to a news release issued this morning by Animal Wellness Action.

The amendment carried with others by a voice vote, which may mean there’s no record of who voted for and against.  The announcement did not indicate if the animals could be transported for pet food and other products.
