Missouri House OKs horse slaughtering bill

Jefferson City, Mo. —
March 30, 2010
(AP) — THE MISSOURI HOUSE has endorsed legislation designed TO ALLOW THE SLAUGHTER OF HORSES FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTIONThe legislation is intended to get around a federal ban on meat inspectors working in horse slaughtering plants.
The House bill would levy fees on slaughterhouses that the state would then transfer to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It was approved by voice vote Monday and needs another vote before moving to the Senate.
Congress has barred federal funds from being spent by USDA to inspect horse slaughtering plants. The horse meat bill also includes a provision aimed at blocking initiative petitions restricting agriculture...

No way that is just to cruel. I would never eat a horse, poor horses.

Horse meat is a staple in other countries but I never dreamed that it would be offered as an entree in Missouri. Well you know they say that there is lead in the water, and well that must be the case...because what the heck are they thinking. A horse is not the new beef. This is disgusting. What's next cat and dog?
