Cavel Closes!

Today no horses will legally die of slaughter for the purpose of human consumption in the United States. There is still much horror out there, but this is a battle won. As noted, there are still appeals, but I must believe that this is the end for Cavel.

Tribune staff report
Published June 29, 2007

A horse slaughtering plant in DeKalb will not open for business Friday after the failure of last-ditch efforts to prevent enforcement of a new state law that forbids production of horse meat for human consumption.

U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Kapala on Thursday refused to extend his June 1 order, which stayed enforcement of the law. The judge had already extended the order once. The order expired Thursday night, thus making continued operation of the plant illegal.

Of course, appeals are still happening, but from their panic I would say that it will be financially unfeasible for it to ever open up again! And I think they're seriously deluded if they think they can win.

This isn't over yet, folks! If you haven't done so, or if you haven't liked their responses, please write your Representatives and Senators to get those bills through. Horses are still being trucked to Canada and Mexico. We need to protect them ALL.
