I was delighted to learn this week that the New York Racing Association has just instituted an anti-slaughter policy, with penalties for those who either directly or indirectly sell a horse for slaughter. And The Tennessean, one of the state’s largest newspapers, comments today on the horse slaughter issue
USA Today yesterday reported on another USDA purchasing program that serves Big Agriculture — purchasing meat for federal food programs from “spent” egg-laying hens.
For a classic example of how poor implementation can undermine the original intent of legislation, look no further than the Bureau of Land Management and its efforts to protect wild horses and burros under the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act.
