Animal protection advocates applauded President Barack Obama on Tuesday for proposing to continue a federal funding ban that's blocking the resumption of commercial horse slaughter in the U.S.
Buried inside President Obama's budget this week is a demand that Congress stop inspections of horse meat slaughter plants — a move that would halt the industry, just as it's poised to ramp up again.
"Wasting tax dollars on the cruelty of horse slaughter makes no sense, and we urge Congress to once again adopt this provision," said Nancy Perry, a senior vice president of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
