Rodeo sells horses for slaughter

According to SHARK ( Show Animals Respect and Kindness), Cowtown Rodeo located in Pilesgrove, NJ sent nine of their horses to auction in Holland, PA. Witnesses confirmed that the horses were purchased by Bruce Rotz. Rotz frequently purchases horses for human consumption in Quebec, Canada.

According to Tuesdayhorse, Cowtown confirmed the horses were sent to the auction which is notorious for selling horses to be slaughtered for human consumption. “Cowtown admitted that they sent nine horses to auction and that they could not ‘control the outcome of a public auction.’ That means they knew there was a very real chance their rodeo horses could wind up being slaughtered for human food. Because of that, we believe that they violated NJ’s anti-horse slaughter law.”

Horse slaughter for human consumption was banned by congress; however the ban was lifted in 2011. While many have been eager to cash in on a new industry, the USDA did not issue permits until the summer of 2013. The Humane Society was granted an injunction last month and the slaughter houses have not been reopened.
