Oklahomans do not kill and eat their horses and we do not kill and eat them anywhere else in the United States.
SB375 if passed would repeal our existing Oklahoma State law which prohibits anyone from possessing, transporting, selling or consuming horse meat. Therefore making horse slaughter and human consumption of horse meat legal for the first time since 1963 in the State of Oklahoma.
HB1999 if passed would make horse slaughter legal in Oklahoma without repealing our current horse meat law as long as the horse meat is not sold in Oklahoma and only to outside entities, meaning outside the state or outside the United States.
Both bills are bad for our domestic and wild horses, Oklahoma tax payers, rural communities, and for the image of Oklahoma as a horse friendly state.
Over 80% of Americans are against horse slaughter and the consumption of horse meat. A solid reflection of how consumers and horse industry participants vote and spend on this issue is clear, as every attempt at re-opening horse slaughter plants in the United States since 2007 has been met with fierce opposition across the nation.
