Great News from HSUS about Stopping Horse Slaughter!!!!!!!

I just received this wonderful information from HSUS NRRO. As you may know I live in Montana and have been emailing senators and representatives for over two years on this issue. Finally we have good news. Our Montana Wild Horse herds are a little safer. If your representative was helpful in getting this passed please send him or her a "Thank You".

This just came in:

This is wonderful news. However, it will only ban slaughter temporarily, for one year. Please ask your legislators to pass the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, which will permanently ban horse slaughter and transportation for slaughter.
