“Not only did the GAO misrepresent the data, they completely missed the importance of hay prices and availability,”
American horse advocates have called into question the reliability of a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) which it said helped open the way for the resumption of horse slaughter on US soil.
The Equine Welfare Alliance and the Animal Law Coalition allege figures in the report, entitled “Horse Welfare: Action needed to address unintended consequences from cessation of domestic slaughter”, were presented in a misleading way.
In doing so, the GAO misrepresented horse abuse and neglect, the groups allege.
