Investigative journalist, Suzanne Marcus-Fletcher continues her Itunes series on the state of horse welfare in America in a 60 minute interview with nationally recognized equine advocate, Shelley Sawhook, President of the American Horse Defense Fund (AHDF) based in Washington, D.C.  AHDF is the nation's leading horse welfare organization working to protect America's horses from abuse http://www.savinghorses.org.  Fletcher's interview with Sawhook can be heard live or on demand at www.blogtalkradio/thebodypolitic. The broadcast will be available in the Itunes store under The Body Politic / Blog Talk Radio podcasts. Among the show's topics will be the current status of H.R. 503, and other major advocacy initiatives now underway at the AHDF on the issues of horse slaughter, and equine transport–––still legal in the U.S. despite H.R. 503, a bill that would preclude "kill buyers" from transporting American horses to Canada and Mexico to slaughter by the tens of thousands each year.
