Cavel is NOT up and running - it was shut down on June 28th. BUT, horses are being shipped by the thousands to Mexico and Canada and will be until we get the federal law passed.  Yes, there is slaughter for non-human consumption BUT the profits are not there so the plants essentially cannot operate on that business alone.

Cavel is still up and running, for the time being, lots of legal wrangling.  TX has a delegate (?) fighting viciously to allow the plants there to re-open.
The ban, as I understand it, was to stop slaughter for human consumption -- not pet food.  Obviously, human food has a higher value. 
There is a lot of internet buzz in reference to the shippers going to Canada.  I don't understand quite how though?  Its a pain getting thru that border with one horse, how would you take a trailer load.. I'm sure at least 25 head??  I can believe Mexico would be easier....

 I do not believe that is passed in all states, but if I am wrong, then the horses will be shipped to Mexico and Canada.

I was under the impression that all the slaughter houses are closed.  What's
the story here?
