Equine Welfare Group Issues Slaughter White Paper

The group Veterinarians for Equine Welfare (VEW) recently issued a white paper entitled "Horse Slaughter--Its Ethical Impact and Subsequent Response of the Veterinary Profession."  

The paper was created in response to the American Veterinary Medical Association and other organizations opposing proposed legislation that would ban horse slaughter in the United States, as well as the exportation of horses for slaughter.

The VEW characterized materials distributed by these groups as "misinformation" in a Jan. 9 release.
