CBS News to Do Story on Horse Slaughter


It was just brought to our attention by the AVMA Washington, DC office that Dan Rather will do a piece on this evening's news of interest to some ISVMA members. They’re assuming the piece will be on horse slaughter.  Please click on the link below for the teaser.  The Horse Welfare Coalition is contacting the CBS Evening News this afternoon and providing them information about the coalition's stand the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act.  We can only hope at this time that they review the information and do an objective news story.
