Horse Slaughter plants in New Mexico and Iowa lost their bid to begin killing American horses, next week, when a Federal Judge granted a Temporary Restraining Order against their operation this day.

Front Range Equine Rescue, HSUS and others had filed suit against the USDA and their arguments were deemed valid by a Federal Judge on August 2nd, 2013.

HSUS president and CEO Wayne Pacelle issued this statement: “We’ve won a temporary but life-saving reprieve for horses, and it’s good news indeed that the kill boxes in New Mexico and Iowa will be empty of horses in the weeks ahead. “<

“We’ve won a significant victory for the horses and we look forward to fighting on to end the slaughter of America’s horses once and for all.” stated Hilary Wood, plaintiff and President of Front Range Equine Rescue.
