Another baby step to stopping the slaughter

The DeKalb slaughter house in Illinois has been shut down after a federal court determined that it illegal for the USDA to accept money for inspection. Full story here http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-070329horse-slaughter,1,3039045.story?track=rss

There were efforts to rescue the horses that were already taken there but weren't taken into slaughter, but it was refused. http://www.habitatforhorses.org/whatsnew/effortsrefused.html

We still need to work on getting the Horse Protection Act S.311.IS and H.R.503.IH through the Senate and House, as this action does nothing to keep the horses from being taken to Canada or Mexico for slaughter. Also H.R.249.IH has been introduced to the House to restore protection for Wild Horses.

For those who feel that the "Unwanted Horses in Kentucky" article was a great blow here are two responses exposing the lies: http://www.stophorseslaughter.com/kyarticle.htm
