An animal rights group says a majority of New Mexicans want nothing to do with the slaughtering of horses.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) released a poll Thursday.
The poll, done by Lake Research Partners, shows 70 percent of voters are against horse slaughtering for food.
70 percent also oppose a slaughtering plant in their community.
The poll comes in response to the horse slaughterhouse that could soon open near Roswell.
The USDA still has to approve it.
