HORSE INJURY AND RETIREMENT ACT sign now

HORSE INJURY AND RETIREMENT ACT (Proposed new USDA law):

Commentary:
The Federal Government currently has a law that effectively bans horses from being intentionally crippled for competition; also a law which bans horses from being injured on the way to slaughter in the USA. This proposed would provide medical proof to re-enforce these laws.
This proposed law would also by effect help prevent stolen horse from going to slaughter; ban retired horses from interstate competition; and aid the USDA and other national organizations in monitoring the health of the individual horse as well as the horse industry.
