Two bills have passed the Oklahoma Senate and House, (SB 375 and HB 1999 ), that would end a 50 year ban and allow the slaughter of horses for human consumption.

California Proposition 6 (1998) was passed by state voters, outlawing the possession, transfer, reception or holding any horse, pony, burro or mule by a person who is aware that it will be used for human consumption, and making the slaughter of horses sale of horsemeat for human consumption a misdemeanor offense.

Until 2007, a few horse meat slaughterhouses still existed in the United States, selling meat to zoos to feed their carnivores, and exporting it for human consumption, but the last one, Cavel International in Dekalb, Illinois, was closed by court order in 2007. The closure reportedly caused a surplus of horses in Illinois.

On November 18, 2011, the ban on the slaughter of horses for meat was lifted as part of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

How hypercritical of them !! They have already said in UK because of the medicines that horses have that they are not really safe for human consumption
Oklahoma have said they cannot be eaten there but exported so its ok to kill everyone else off!
These beautiful animals should not be killed or eaten
Man has enough choice to eat He is already killing just about anything that walks or swims Where will it end!

It comes as it was prophesied thousands of years before.The humanity will more and more that reaping what they have sown.Wether you believe in it or not,but this brutal world will perish piece by piece.
After all animals are gone from the planet,then more and stronger desasters will haunt us.
That's the fact!
