Slaughterhouse Closes It's Doors

Cavel International had to shut down yesterday at midnight, that's when a previously issued temporary court order allowing it to stay open expired. Last month, state leaders banned the sale of horse meat for human consumption.

However, Cavel was allowed to stay open while they challenged that state law. 23 News tried to contact the owner of Cavel today but he's on vacation and unavailable.
