Hermiston, OR — The city of Hermiston’s land-use attorney says the site proposed for a horse slaughtering plant does not have a water right and isn’t zoned for that kind of facility.

Portland lawyer Mike Robinson told city officials that the 234 acres near Interstate 84 is zoned for exclusive farmland use, so a zoning change would be needed.

Top city officials oppose the project, which would be outside the urban growth boundary. The county commissioners would have final say on zoning issues. No application for a zoning change has been filed.


In the source article, it states David Duquette is President of United Horsemen and “of Hermiston”. — Ed.

  1. Horse slaughtering is horrible and inhumane. Horses of this country deserve better. They’re the most beautiful creatures with such intelligence and loyalty. Shame on anyone that pushes for killing these majestic animals.
