“Under the bill, the sale of horse meat still would be illegal in Oklahoma…”

Eye of the SlaughteredOKLAHOMA CITY -A state Senate committee has unanimously approved a bill that opens the way for a horse slaughtering facility in Oklahoma.

3/3/2013 Related Story: Debate Heats Up On Controversial Oklahoma Horse Slaughter Bill

The Senate Agriculture and Rural Development Committee on Monday voted 9-0 in favor of the bill by Bristow Republican Rep. Skye McNiel. It would end Oklahoma’s 50-year ban on the slaughter of horses for human consumption.

Under the bill, the sale of horse meat still would be illegal in Oklahoma, but the export for sale in other countries would be allowed.

Read House Bill 1999

Supporters say it would provide a humane option for unwanted, aging horses in Oklahoma. Animal rights groups have fiercely opposed the measure and to a similar bill pending in the House.

McNiel’s bill now heads to the full Senate for consideration.

  1. I didn’t think this was any longer an issue…I thought the people had let them know what their thoughts were about horse slaughter in their state… why do I get the impression that it’s all going to end up like this anyway regardless what ANYONE says or does.

      • Excellent resource, Steve. Everyone should go on to these sites and voice your opinion directly to your senators and representative.It is easy. It looked like 78% were for a ban on horse slaughter and 22% against it – about the same as the nation at large.

        If our government works for the majority, this should be a slam-dunk. If this does not even get to the floor to be voted on, we need to find out who is blocking it and demand better government.

  8. Where is the voice of the People? 90% of the people do not want horse slaughter in this state or anywhere in the USA. If over population is a problem then we need to change how we over breed horses, change how the industry around horses is conducted. We are capable to find humane ways to deal with this issue and not to continuously be irresponsible with our use of horses..one thing I am talking about is horse racing. What about the four year old thoroughbred that has no use after he is not a winner?.He/she races for man, then they destroy the horse with violent slaughter because they no longer have a place to go after the track. Look at the ways we allow this continuous abuse!! We have to take a stand for our horses as we have for our dogs, cats and other animals. We can’t allow this abuse, this is not what America stands for. How can we say we care about the welfare of other nations with millions of our tax aid dollars when we can’t even treat our national treasure with humane kindness and respect?

The EU and Japan are likely not to accept it due to the toxic residues and recent scandal that has showcased the entire fraudulent industry and disregard for regulations – what a joke it all has been. Then there is the fact that it is illegal to use horse meat in pet food yet they are knowingly sending it overseas for human consumption. What kind of,or better said, lack of ethics does this constitute? Disgusting. Well at least our pets are not subject to it and I couldn’t give a sh*t about those who choose to eat it. And then there is this whole government inititative to reduce the number of inspectors for “regular” disgustingly factory farmed animals for human consumption. How is there any justification to support inspections for an industry that has no domestic value. This is simply sick. I am disgusted and ashamed to be part of this human race. Don’t mind me just at the limit. Thank you all who feel the same way.

We need limits on breeding, we need government funding of horse rescues (which create jobs), and we need vegan/vegetarian companies to sponsor and look after “unwanted surplus” horses/equines.

    It doesn’t have to be big or ostentatious, just a simple bright color or mark – something akin to what the Better Business Bureau uses to endorse a business.
    Part of this would be to publicly show your non-support of the bill. The other part would be to avoid the boycott of goods and services in Oklahoma. Residents could conceivably NOT shop where the logo isn’t displayed.

    • So, biotech researchers want this donor equine serum to perform animal based experiements and they “harvest” this material from horses just prior to being slaughtered. Therefore, Oklahoman biomed industries will benefit from having a horse slaughter facility even though they export the meat. Then they sell slaughter as “humane” since horses will not have to be transported to Canada or Mexico. Pretty slick. I wonder who is being paid off by biomed (large donor) “campaign contributions” to promote this.
