USA: New Congress, New SAFE Act—Ban Horse Slaughter in 2017!
We are pleased to annouce the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, which would prevent the cruel horse slaughter industry from establishing operations in the U.S. and prohibit the export of American horses for slaughter abroad, was introduced in the Senate on August 2, 2017. The House introduced its version of the bill earlier this year.
The bill already has strong bipartisan support, but it's vital that past cosponsors sign on again. We also need to educate new members of the House and Senate about the issue of horse slaughter and the importance of finally banning this cruel practice once and for all.
