 On June, 2007 a federal judge refused the request from Cavel  to stay open thus closing down the last horse slaughter facility in the United States. With a host of violations for discharging waste water with excessive levels of contamination, the DeKalb plant racked up over $80,000 in fines in one year. The Government Accounting Office ( GAO) the independent non-partisan federal agency that acts as the investigative arm of Congress concluded that horses slaughtered in the United States were being slaughtered alive and while still conscious; a violation of the Humane Care for Animals Act.
