OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Members of an animal rights group plan to request a ban on horse slaughtering during a meeting of the federal Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Committee.
The committee is meeting Monday and Tuesday in Oklahoma City. Members of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign , a national coalition, plan to call for a halt to federal wild horse roundups, an end to the government's policy of selling wild horses for as little as $10 a piece and an outright ban on horse slaughter.
Members of the group say almost 22,000 captured wild horses are held in Oklahoma, which is on a path to legalize horse slaughter. Legislation that would authorize the operation of horse slaughter plants in the state have been passed by the House and Senate.
