None needed at this time.
This hearing was well attended. Thank you to all those who were able to attend and express your opposition to Wildlife Services’ use of M-44 devices and other dangerous poisons.
On July 12, the House Appropriations Committee dealt a devastating blow to horses with the narrow defeat of an amendment to the US Department of Agriculture FY18 funding bill that would have continued to prevent horse slaughter plants from operating in the United States. On July 20, the Senate Appropriations Committee will consider its version of that funding bill and the same amendment to bar the USDA from inspecting horse slaughter plants will be offered. We are counting on the Senate committee to again vote to prevent the horse slaughter industry from resuming its inhumane practices in the United States.
If your senator is a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, please ask him/her to vote in favor of the amendment that would prevent the reestablishment of this inhumane industry in the United States.
Thank you for taking action to on behalf of the animals by contacting your Senator.
