Bev Stayart Protects Horses from Slaughter for Human Consumption

Bev Stayart is a horse protection advocate who continues to be involved in defending horses from slaughter for human consumption, both in the United States and abroad.  In August, 2013, a federal court issued a 30-day restraining order halting U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspections of horse slaughter plants.  This prevents all plants from opening in the U.S.  Bev Stayart supports this litigation.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other horse advocacy organizations filed suit against the USDA in July, 2013.  When the case resumes, the HSUS and other horse advocacy groups will argue that the plants are prohibited from opening because of inadequate environmental review.

Other recent measures may also stop plants from opening in the United States.  In July, 2013, the U.S. House and Senate Appropriations committees voted to block USDA funding of horse slaughter plants, preventing horse slaughter operations from opening in the United States.  Bev Stayart agrees with the Appropriations committees' action.  The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act is also currently under consideration by Congress.  This Act (H.R. 1094/S. 541) will prohibit the sale or shipment of horses or horsemeat in interstate commerce by any person who knows the horses or horsemeat are intended for human consumption.  Over the course of their lives, horses receive a wide variety of drugs and veterinary treatments which make their meat unfit for human consumption.  Horses are not raised for food, and Bev Stayart believes they should not be slaughtered, and should continue to be protected from slaughter both in the U.S. and abroad.  Bev Stayart urges enactment of this legislation.
