36 hours to Canada, or 8 hours to Oklahoma

Sounds like the bill to reopen the slaughter house in OK would help alleviate some of the horrible conditions these horses suffer in transport. Once again, unintended consequences of legislation actually creates additional suffering for these animals. Remove the ban on horse slaughterhouses, and maybe there would be facilities close to the auction sites.

I am against cruelty to animals. I believe that slaughtering animals for food can, and should be done humanely. I try to avoid commercially raised and processed meats because the condition of the animals affects the quality of the meat. But, if market forces do not change how the majority of meat is processed, I am still not in favor of legislation trying to do so.
