Legislators introduced horse slaughter prevention bills simultaneously Jan. 17 in both the United States House of Representatives and Senate in an effort to increase public awareness. Last year the bill was passed in the House with a 263 to 146 vote, but the Senate adjourned before members were able to vote on the bill.
A bill in the U.S. Senate that aims to end horse slaughter for human consumption will most likely be put on hold until next year.
A bill that would outlaw the slaughter of horses for human consumption was introduced Tuesday in the U.S. Senate by Sen. John Ensign of Nevada.
