Horse meat for human consumption? The idea is repugnant to every individual I have spoken to in the last few days, not one person could even fathom the prospect.

Attorney General King is strongly against the plan to begin butchering horses. The latest news about horses in New Mexico comes on the heels of other negative accounts about the state's horse racing industry and a horse auction facility where some horses were found to be horribly suffering from injury and malnutrition.

News of the horse slaughtering plan spread rapidly throughout New Mexico and today is a national story. Please follow the link below.
