The horses come from two feed lots in Manitoba and are large, draft horses.

The processed meat is sent exclusively to Japan for sale.

The plant currently only has a license to slaughter horses, but hopes to obtain a license to process cattle as well.

KML is one of only several licensed horse slaughter plants in Canada.

The protest is taking place this Saturday, with participants gathering at the Westwold Elementary School
