Pro-Horse Processing Groups Meeting Today
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Supporters of legislation that would allow for a horse slaughtering plant in Oklahomaplan to rally at the state Capitol.
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau is slated to hold the event Wednesday morning at the state Capitol to support bills that would pave the way for a horse slaughtering facility in the state.
The Oklahoma Quarter Horse Racing Association has also issued a statement saying it supports the "concept of the slaughter of horses in Oklahoma."
The House and Senate have each passed bills designed to end Oklahoma's 50-year ban on horse slaughtering and allow a facility to open that would package horse meat for export.
The sale of horse meat for human consumption still would be prohibited in Oklahoma.
