horses

Lewis Livestock Auction workers Lynn Barker, top, and Mike Bolin round up horses into holding area before going into the sale barn ring to be sold to the highest bidder. Some horse buyers will slaughter the animals for meat, mostly exported to Europe. There are several new federal regulations to end horse slaughtering in the U.S., but most people within the horse industry say the ban on horse slaughter would be devastating to the state's horse industry. Auction operators say it has already caused the price of horses to drop drastically.
