Breaking - Christie Signs Horse Slaughter Ban

Governor Chris Christie has signed a bill banning the slaughter of horses for human consumption in New Jersey meaning no slaughter plants will be established in the state for such purpose.  In addition to this ban, it is also against the law to transport a horse out of state for purposes of slaughter for human consumption.  Of course, this will not stop the transport of horses through the state without stopping for slaughter, but it means no horse will be sold in New Jersey and sent to slaughter in Canada or Mexico.
