If you love donkeys, horses and mules please stay informed and share information to help the equine living in your part of the world. Please select New Jersey Passes Law to Protect Horses from Horse Slaughter.
COPIED FROM THE LINK ABOVE - Applause for Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey! The governor signed Bill A.2023/S.1976 into law on Friday, September 21.
The New Jersey law makes it illegal to slaughter horses for human consumption. Fortunately, it is written with a well-thought out level of detail and wording. To be sure, this law prevents the slaughter of horses, but it also does not allow the sale of horse meat for human consumption. Further, the law prohibits the transport of live horses through New Jersey for slaughter, and also bans the movement of horse meat through the state.
Governor Christie said, “This bipartisan measure is a nod to our decency and respect for horses in our state, ensuring that no horse is slaughtered in New Jersey for human consumption. It also ensures that our highways will not be used to transport horses to slaughter in other states which have not enacted a similar ban on the practice.”
Please share information as knowledge is power you can make a difference for our world, you can be a human angel for another living human or animal.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
