Blog: ILLINOIS ANIMAL ACTIVISTS  

Dear Illinois Animal Advocates,

HB 4162 is a bill before the Illinois House of Representatives that would make it illegal to transport horses in Illinois in double-decker trailers. These trailers, designed for cattle and sheep, are inappropriate, inhumane and dangerous for use with horses. Because they are prone to overturning, the presence of these trailers on our roads endangers both the horses inside and regular motorists. A federal law states that it is illegal to transport horses bound for slaughter in double-decker trailers—so why not ban it in all circumstances?

What You Can Do
Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center to send an email to your state representative urging him or her to support HB 4162.

Please remember that legislators get a lot of email—personalization is what makes some emails stand out over others. As a constituent, your words are important to your representative, so it is vital that you use the space provided to add your own comments to our form letter.
