<div class="quote-block">WASHINGTON The Supreme Court on Monday unanimously struck down a California law that had sought to keep out of the food supply animals that are unable to walk. The justices said the state law conflicted with a federal one.<br><br>
Justice Elena Kagan, writing for the court, said the Federal Meat Inspection Act, which regulates slaughterhouses, pre-empted the California law, which requires the immediate euthanasia of downer animals and bars their slaughter or sale.<br><br>
The state law was enacted in response to undercover videos released in 2008 by the Humane Society of the United States. They showed, as Justice Kagan put it, workers at a slaughterhouse in California dragging, kicking and electroshocking sick and disabled cows in an effort to move them.</div>

It appears the meat industry has won once again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I guess if people want to get the human version of mad cow disease, they're on the right track. Hopefully other countries will have more sense and ban the import of U.S. beef.

Major victory for the arable farmers too!<br><br>
The meat industry is a VERY major customer to them.<br><br>
Just pointing out the unholy alliance there that few people ever talk about ...
