"The horse slaughter industry is inherently cruel, and its heinous acts begin the moment the horse is sold into the hands of the slaughterhouses."

[Federal]  Buchanan Seeks Permanent Ban on Horse Slaughter
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

It’s been almost a decade since a series of horse thefts and slaughters in the Sarasota-Bradenton area sparked anger among area animal activists. Over that time, U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, has continued to push for a U.S. ban on the killing of horses for meat.

The Congressman co-led a bipartisan letter with U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Illinois, demanding the prohibition the use of any U.S. tax dollars for horse slaughter. The lawmakers sent the letter to House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee leaders asking that the U.S Department of Agriculture instate a permanent ban on the practice enforced by federal food and safety inspectors.

“This overwhelmingly popular and fiscally responsible policy has been enacted for each year since Fiscal Year 2014 and for all but two years since 2005,” the letter reads. “Horse slaughter is an inherently cruel practice that 83% of Americans want to see permanently banned.”

The letter bore the signatures of 120 U.S. House members, including U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota.

“The slaughter of horses for human consumption is a barbaric practice that has no place in our country,” Buchanan said. “As co-chair of the Animal Protection Caucus in Congress, I look forward to continuing to lead the effort with Congresswoman Schakowsky to protect these majestic creatures.”

He has successfully pushed for Congress to impose restrictions in USDA’s budget each year since 2014, but the prohibition must be renewed each year.

The span of time for continuous bans coincidentally dates back to a series of local crimes in 2015 when individual stole horses off farms in east Sarasota County, around the same time a show horse was found butchered at a Parrish Farm. Deputies at the time told local media they believed that horse had been killed for its meat.

Different regions of South Florida continue to see spates of horse thefts, and three horses were found slaughters in Miami-Dade County earlier this year.

Buchanan the past few years had worked with Schakowsky on the legislative effort to ban horse slaughter in the U.S. completely.

The year-by-year restrictions have delivered an impact, with the last slaughterhouse dedicated to butchering horses closed about seven years ago.

But some slaughterhouses in the country continue to buy horses, and have opposed a ban on the practice of killing horses when the practice, at least at professional facilities, differs little from killing cows and pigs. Christian Stoltzfuss, an executive for New Holland Sales in Pennsylvania, told Horse & Rider last year that many horses sold for slaughter are past their prime and otherwise unwanted by farms.

“If they’re usable and we can find a home for them, I want to do that,” he told the trade publication. “But some are mentally or physically beyond repair. What are we going to do with the ones that don’t find a home?”

But animal rights groups are working with Buchanan and Schakowsky to shut down the practice of butchering horses for good. They say it’s a cruel way to end the life of many horses and supports a black market leading to the horse thefts and killings investigated in Florida and around the nation.

“With the last horse slaughter plant in the United States closing in 2007, Congress has continuously agreed that shutting down this predatory industry remains paramount in protecting our economy and loyal companions,” said Tracie Letterman, vice president of Federal Affairs for the Humane Society Legislative Fund. “The horse slaughter industry is inherently cruel, and its heinous acts begin the moment the horse is sold into the hands of the slaughterhouses.”

[Hospital News]  Cardiac Surgery Patients with Elevated Stroke Risk May Be Eligible for New Clinical Trial at SMH

Sarasota Memorial is one of up to 250 research sites participating in a multi-center, multi-national clinical trial to determine whether sealing a small, seemingly unnecessary sac in the heart during routine cardiac surgery can prevent strokes in some patients. Cardiac specialists have been closing the finger-like pouch called the left atrial appendage (LAA) for years to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (Afib). Devices such as the FDA-cleared AtriClip and LAA closure devices have demonstrated to be simple, effective, and low risk additions to routine cardiac procedures for patients with Afib. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the ‘Left Atrial Appendage Exclusion for Prophylactic Stroke Prevention (LeAAPS)’ trial to determine if implanting the AtriCure AtriClip® LAA exclusion system offers protection against ischemic stroke or systemic embolism in patients who do not have Afib, but are at risk for developing Afib. Patients who are scheduled for routine heart surgery, such as artery bypass or valve replacement procedures, and have one or more risk factors for developing Afib (which puts them at greater risk for stroke) will be screened for the study, said Jeffrey Sell, MD, Chief of Cardiac Surgery and principal investigator of the study at SMH. The LAA is a small sac on the left atrium of the heart that fills with blood and empties with every beat of the heart. In most people, the LAA is of little or no concern. However, in some people with certain heart conditions, especially Afib, blood can pool in the pouch and form blood clots that can break free and cause a stroke or other embolic complication. Afib is an abnormal heart rhythm that affects about one in 10 people by age 70 and the risk gradually increases with age. LeAAPS is a prospective, randomized, blinded, superiority study that will enroll up to 6,500 subjects. Patients who already have Afib are excluded from the study. Patients will be divided into two groups: one is a treatment group in which surgeons will implant the AtriClip in conjunction with another cardiac surgical procedure; the second is a control group in which patients undergo a scheduled cardiac procedure but do not receive the AtriClip. Researchers will be monitoring both groups of patients for stroke, systemic embolization, Afib, and other risk factors for at least five years. More information about the trial is available on clinicaltrials.gov (Identifier: NCT05478304) or by calling the Sarasota Memorial Research Institute at (941) 917-2225.

[SOON]  GALLERY: The Petticoat Painters , May 3 – June 1, Various times

Check out The Petticoat Painters, an exhibition of female artists, at SPAACES. The exhibition runs from May 3 through June 1, with an opening reception on Friday, May 3 from 6-8pm. The Petticoat Painters is one of the oldest continuously exhibiting art groups of women in the U.S. This group was formed in 1953 to showcase the talents of female artists at a time when women had difficulty finding venues to show their work. Seven women participated in the first show held at a local Sarasota, Florida gallery. These original members selected the name Petticoat Painters, thinking it would be a one-time show of their work. The name continues to be used both in honor of the founders and to retain its historical signature. While we revere our history, each generation of members evolves its own identity framed by contemporary thinking. As we continue to engage new members, we actively move into the 21st Century in concert with the dynamic metamorphosis in art philosophy and aesthetics. Learn more at Petticoatpainters.com.
