GAO Horse Slaughter Report 2011

GAO Issues its Horse Slaughter Report

GAOThe Government Accountability Office has issued its report, GAO 11-228, on action needed to address unintended consequences of the 2007 closing of domestic slaughter facilities. A principal recommendation: "Congress may wish to consider instituting an explicit ban on the domestic slaughter of horses and export of U.S. horses intended for slaughter in foreign countries."

A bill, S.B. 1176, is already pending in the Senate that would do just that.
