NAVAJO NATION, N.M. (KRQE) - The Navajo Nation says it's changing its stance on horse slaughter.
The Navajo Nation had said it supported the practice to deal with the estimated 75,000 feral horses on its land.
But President Ben Shelly says after meeting with former Gov. Bill Richardson, they've decided to find long-term and humane solutions to prevent horse overpopulation.
The fight to stop horseslaughter has been on-going for more than a year, after Valley Meats in Roswell announced it would begin the practice.
While the agriculture department gave the plant its approval, several animal rights groups sued to stop it.
Valley Meats is not allowed to open until the court makes a ruling.
