TULSA, OK, Mar 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Oklahoma House Bill 1999 and Senate Bill 375 allow USDA inspection of horsemeat… which means the horse slaughter industry can now do business in Oklahoma and horsemeat will be shipped to foreign countries for human consumption. Is that a good idea? The legislators say yes and 80 percent of the voting public say no. So how did these bills get passed? These questions and many more will be answered when “Pam McKissick Without Reserve: Horse Slaughter” airs locally this Sunday, March 17 on Oklahoma City’s KOKC 1520-AM at 9:00 a.m. and Tulsa’s KTSO 94.1-FM at 6:30 a.m. The one-hour show will also stream online at www.pammckissick.com/horse-slaughter. It is available free of charge to radio stations across the country through the Public Radio Exchange (www.prx.org).
A third-generation Oklahoman, business leader, horse owner, rancher and veteran radio personality, Pam McKissick will host a thought-provoking one-hour show and will be joined by three of the most knowledgeable people on the topic who will share their insights and first-hand experiences. Her guests include Vickery Echoff, a U.S. journalist who has published 15 in-depth exposes on the horsemeat trade for Newsweek, The Daily Beast, Forbes.com and The Huffington Post; Mayor Paula Bacon of Kaufman, Texas who actually had the horse slaughter industry in her town along with pollution, crime and economic decline; and she’ll talk to Stephanie Graham one of the more informed horse advocates on what’s behind the rush to slaughter.
Pam and her three guests will give voice to “the other side” and will cover horsemeat in our food supply, life in a horse slaughter town in Texas and why Oklahoma legislature is putting a humane spin on an inhumane industry.
