USA: Update on Pig Slaughter Regulations
Update—December 19, 2019: We are sad to share some disappointing news for pigs: thanks to language put forward by U.S. Representatives Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and David Price (D-NC), there was an opportunity to block the high-speed pig slaughter rule in the FY2020 Appropriations bill. Unfortunately, Congress did not opt to fold this language into the final bill, which was released this week. The rule will move forward as planned. There are other efforts underway to fight this cruel change to pig slaughter regulations, so we will keep you informed on how you can help as those efforts move forward.
