The clock starts ticking for horses slaughter-bound to Canada, but is it really enough?


No horse should meet his death in a slaughterhouse.

The countdown for the unnamed horses who will eventually be sent to Canadian slaughterhouses starts today.
In exactly six months, on July 31st, 2010, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) will require that each horse presented for slaughter is accompanied by his own "passport."  This "Equine Information Document" (EID) is supposed to include a standardized description of the horse, as well as a record of any medical conditions he's had, and drugs he's received, during the last 180 days.
