Horses get a stay of execution

There is a legal battle raging over the possible reopening of horse slaughterhouses in the United States of America. These horse slaughterhouses were shut down about six years ago but that ban was lifted in 2011.  Since then, the battle has been in the courtroom. Groups like the Humane Society of the United States have been fighting against the reopening of these slaughterhouses. Two slaughterhouses, one in New Mexico and one in Missouri, were given the green light to reopen. But on Monday night a judge issued a stay as the Humane Society fought for an appeal.  You can learn more by going to the Humane Society webpage here.
