Missouri DNR Formally Shut Down Permit for Rains Natural Meats

Outstanding Matters

Even with defunding, there are still outstanding matters working their way against horse slaughter plants in the U.S. Good news out of MO:

We are happy to announce that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has once again formally shut down Rains Natural Meats’ efforts to get a permit to discharge wastewater from horse slaughter. The company’s latest request for a horse slaughter permit was denied by the Department, based on the removal of funding for horse slaughter inspections by federal inspectors. Front Range Equine Rescue applauds the decision and hopes that this puts an end to the possibility of horse slaughter in Missouri.
