ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – Thought we had reached an end to the fight over horse slaughter in New Mexico? Think again.
The New Mexico Supreme Court has denied Valley Meat Company’s request to have the judge in the district court case removed.
They believe Judge Matthew Wilson lacks impartiality.
While Congress pulled funding for federal inspections at horse slaughter plants earlier this year, it’s only temporary, and Valley Meat continues to fight for the right to open.
Attorney General Gary King is seeking a permanent order blocking horse slaughter in the state.
