New bill to allow Okla. horses slaughtered for meat
OKLAHOMA CITY - Lawmakers in our state's house are attempting to pass a bill that would legalize the slaughter of horses in the Sooner State.
Under House Bill 1999, the meat from the slaughter would then be shipped out of state and even out of the country.
For many, horses are more than just livestock, they are pets.
Tribute Equine Rescue CEO Natalee Cross said, “Horses aren't your typical livestock animals, they are pets, they are compassionate.”
