The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition just posted the following message on their blog:
There have been conflicting reports throughout the day, but it is apparent now that US horses are being accepted again at Canadian slaughter plants. When we have more information, we’ll pass it along to our followers.
Meantime, here is an update received a short time ago from US based Equine Welfare Alliance:
“We apologize for the delay in this update but we were receiving conflicting information from the EU. We heard several different explanations including one that said he didn’t know anything about it.
What we do know is that unfortunately, the ban was lifted today and the trucks are rolling again. I guess the falsified EIDs and lack of traceability aren’t of concern to the EU.
While this was short-lived, just think of the day that it becomes permanent. That day is coming!
If we receive any additional information, we’ll pass it on to you.”
