Derek lobbies for end to horse slaughtering

Derek lobbies for end to horse slaughteringActress Bo Derek, center, lends her voice to legislation banning horse slaughtering in Illinois as she meets with bill sponsor Robert Molaro, D-Chicago, right, and other legislators on May 18 at the Passfield House in Springfield, Ill. The Illinois legislation Derek supports is meant to keep a DeKalb horse slaughtering plant from reopening. Cavel International Inc. was destroyed in a fire two years ago, but it has been rebuilt and is slated to reopen this month.
