Trump Budget Raises Chance of Wild Horse Slaughter

 According to a report, Donald Trump's budget proposal calls for saving $10 million by selling wild horses without the requirement that buyers guarantee the animals won't be then resold for slaughter. Trump's plan reportedly addresses the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and other interests who have urged the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for years to allow sales of wild horses for slaughter in order to free up room in overcrowded government corrals. Wild-horse advocates say the plan would gut nearly 50 years of protection for wild horses in the Western part of the U.S. Horse slaughterhouses are prohibited in the U.S. but legal in many other countries, including Canada and Mexico.
