    Horse slaughterhouses may be allowed in the US again

    Federal officials on Friday approved a Roswell, N.M., company’s application to convert its cattle slaughterhouse into a horse processing plant in a move that paves the way for the resumption of horse slaughter in the U.S.

    Officials also indicated that they would soon grant similar permits to facilities in Iowa and Missouri.
    Animal welfare groups on Friday immediately said they would sue to halt the move – the latest face-off in the debate over the treatment of animals that over the years have come to symbolize the American West.
    Congress eliminated such funding in 2006, which forced a shutdown of domestic slaughter facilities, but restored the funding in 2011. That action prompted several companies nationwide, including Valley Meat, to seek permission to open plants.

    Horse meat is pretty good. Some of the best jerky I've ever had.

    I have no problem with the slaughterhouse, but why do they need to be federally funded?

    It's part of the dog and pony show designed to make suckers believe we need the federal government to pay for everything.
