Citing concerns about neglect of horses owned by Mohamed El Deeb, the Minnesota Racing Commission on Sept. 6 denied his license applications, saying he was "unsuitable for licensing in Minnesota in any capacity."
A federal district court ordered March 28 a shut-down of a U.S. Department of Agriculture program that allowed the slaughter of American horses for human consumption to be paid for by the slaughter houses. The program was put into place shortly after Congress voted in 2005 to cut federal funding for inspections of horsemeat.
