Horse for dinner
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I am appalled that the Utah Legislature's Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Interim Committee is considering building a taxpayer-funded slaughter plant for horses and creating an in-state market for horse meat.

Not only is this a misuse of our tax dollars and of horses, but horse meat is not fit for human consumption. Horses are routinely given medications and other substances that are toxic to humans and are expressly forbidden by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in animals intended for human consumption. Please contact them to express your opposition.
