Animal protection groups applaud Senate bill to ban horse slaughter

US HR 875 is a bill that aims to prevent human health threats posed by the consumption of equines raised in the United States. However upon further inspection it is a result of when horse slaughter houses were removed from the United States and horses began to be shipped to Canada and Mexico for slaughter.  This falls out of USDA jurisdiction. Some owners have dumped their horses in the West among the wild horses because they no longer had access to slaughterhouses; thus creating an overpopulation problem with wild horses with the added complication that they are now overgrazing their habitat. I implore you to read up more about this topic, as it is a hot button issue for Americans who do not wish to consume horse meat.
