(AP) — A proposal to build a horse slaughter plant in western Missouri has stalled but the main proponent of the plan says she isn't giving up. In June, Wyoming legislator Sue Wallis announced that a former beef processing plant in Rockville was being retrofitted to be a horse slaughtering plant.
The Kansas City Star reports that wasn't true. Wallis' company, Unified Equine, has not acquired the building. Wallis says the plans are still on, but she's also announced plans to open a slaughter plant in Oklahoma. The beef processing plant in Rockville is mired in ownership and legal troubles. Owner Vincent Paletta was sued for breach of contract and he and his wife have been sued by an electrician who says he's owed $60,000.
