ALBUQUERQUE — The Navajo Nation says it will end its wild horse roundups and reverse its public support for a return to domestic horse slaughter following talks with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson.

Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly said Tuesday that he met with Richardson over the weekend and they agreed to work together to find more long-term and humane solutions to the horse overpopulation problem.

    Many people have presented tons of info to the media showing that horse slaughter in the USA was, and will be again, as cruel and heinous as Mexico or Canada, and the barbaric deadly and inhumane transport would continue as well across the good ole USA as it does now on a daily basis. Shame on you and the pro slaughter rhetoric.
