The Attorney General of New Mexico, Gary King, has put forward a lawsuit to stop Valley Meat from proceeding with horse slaughter. Mr. King touches on these salient points and more:
- Horses are not raised with intent of being used for food and thus have unknown drugs potentially dangerous to humans used on them while still alive.
- There is no water discharge permit as required by New Mexico state law in place from Valley Meats
- That Valley Meat is violating unfair practices acts by creating a product of unknown quality.
All of what Mr. King discusses are a solid, logical points as to why horse slaughter should not be permitted in the state of New Mexico from a legal view point. Valley Meat will be foolish to proceed.
