Horse Slaughter

Featured in Top Stories

Oklahoma is horse country. It may also become home to a facility that processes horse meat for human consumption. Now that the USDA can once again inspect such plants, support has grown in the state legislature to use tax breaks and other incentives to encourage someone to build a horse slaughter facility here. The last U.S. rendering plant closed five years ago and since that time, thousands of Oklahoma horses have gone to slaughter in Canada and Mexico.

Feral Hogs

Featured in Top Stories

Problems with feral hogs were first reported in rural southeastern Oklahoma in the 1980's. Now, landowners in all 77 counties are becoming aware of the damage these wild mammals can cause. Feral hogs are even starting to move into urban areas, just as they have in Texas. As the population of feral swine explodes, the Department of Agriculture is trying to find ways to reduce their numbers. But, it isn't easy.

Exotic Animal Regulation (7:05)

Featured in Top Stories

Several days ago, the owner of an exotic animal farm in Zanesville, Ohio released more than fifty dangerous wild animals and then committed suicide. What followed was a law enforcement animal hunt to protect citizens in the area. The hunt ended with the killing of most of the animals, and triggered national interest in the exotic animal business. It turns out that five states don't regulate private ownership of dangerous wild animals. Ohio is one of them. And so is Oklahoma

Featured in ONR Extras

A stocky, ground-dwelling bird is at the center of an impending decision which could have a major impact on businesses and industries that operate in northwest Oklahoma. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently conducting a study to determine whether the lesser prairie chicken should be listed as an endangered species and receive protection. State officials and business leaders testified at a forum sponsored by U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe--arguing that such a listing could pose major economic development problems in the region. Among those participating in that forum were new wildlife service director Dan Ashe and Oklahoma Secretary of the Environment Gary Sherrer.
