Federal appeals court halts horse slaughterhouses

FILE - This April 15, 2013, file photo shows Valley Meat Co., which has been sitting idle for more than a year, waiting for the Department of Agriculture to approve its plans to slaughter horses. A federal appeals court on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013, temporarily halted plans by companies in two U.S. states to begin slaughtering horses, continuing on-again, off-again efforts to resume domestic equine slaughter two years after Congress lifted a ban on the practice.(AP Photo/Jeri Clausing, File)
