Wyoming's Governor has signed HB 122-Disposal of Livestock. This bill provides the Wyoming Department of Livestock with three different options when dealing with abandoned, estrays, abused or feral animals. These options include taking the animal to public sale, slaughtering the animal or destroying the animal.
If the Board of Livestock chooses slaughter, their will be guidelines on how and where the meat can be given to and sold. All meat will be state inspected.
A working group is being formed between stage agencies, veterinarians, Dr. Temple Grandin, meat processors and other experts to design a system for processing horses and the efficient and practical use of the valuable meat and byproducts.
