6-3-2003...Texas Horse Slaughter bill that would
have overturned a 1949
Texas law banning horse slaughtering for human consumption is
stopped...but the two Belgium foreign-owned horse slaughterhouses in
Texas now aims higher under the auspices that federal law
supercedes state laws. Meanwhile, slaughtering of ten of
thousands of horses continue in Texas. Illinois
legislators did a 180 degree turn against America's horses.
The Illinois legislature has sentenced America's horses to
horrible deaths by defeating the bill Illinois, HB 3845, that would
have prevented rebuilding and reopening of the Cavel
International foreign-owned horse slaughterhouse plant for human
consumption in De Kalb, Illinois. NOW, there are now
three foreign-owned horse slaughterhouses for human consumption

ALMOST MOVED MOUNTAINS"...NV Assembly Bill 219,
which originated thru
Henderson, NV elementary students and introduced
into the 2001 Nevada Legislature by
Buckley, D-Las Vegas, to make the Wild Horse/Mustang Nevada's
2nd state animal,
along side the bighorn sheep, was withdrawn
by Assemblywoman Buckley when
NV Senator Dean Rhoads-R, father of Sagebrush Rebellion and public lands
amendment 1001 that turned the children's Assembly Bill 219 into just another Nevada
pro-livestock/anti-wild horse bill. See
6-3-2001. Then NV Senator Amodei-R,
Storey County, Nevada, where the 98 Christmas holiday
wild horse slaughter occurred, cast the
deciding Senate floor
vote against the children's bill.
Kids, you fought a great battle
the facts that should have made the wild horse/mustang
Nevada's 2nd state animal.
Never give up
for what you know is right! Remember Nevada's Wild
philosophy was battles may be won, but the
war continues on to protect and
preserve America's free
roaming wild horses & burros.
