SB 655: Bill to ban Horse Slaughter in MA, USA

Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) applauds the Honorable Stephan Brewer, Senator of Massachusetts for introducing Senate bill 655, which takes a positive step to improving equine welfare.

The bill is pending before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary. A hearing held Oct 5, 2011 included the testimony of Dr. Linda Breitman, Kathryn Webers of AAHS, and other horse advocates. Dr Nicholas Dodman and Katia Louise submitted written testimony to the committee chairs in support of the bill.

Proponents of slaughter are making their position heard quite well, but the committee has not yet voted on the bill and MA residents are urged to continue sending letters of support in order to ban horse slaughter in the great state of Massachusetts.
