Rep. Dennis Cardoza has failed to support an array of important animal protection measures in 2007. Cardoza has one of the worst records on animal-protection issues in the entire U.S. House of Representatives. Here are a few that he's failed to support: the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (House Resolution 503) which would bar domestic horses from being hauled to Mexico and Canada to be butchered for human consumption; the Dog and Cat Fur Prohibition Enforcement Act (HR 891), which was introduced after fur trim on coats and toys from China was discovered to be from dogs and cats; the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act (HR 137), which would have established felony-level penalties. He voted against the prohibition of the sale and slaughter of wild horses and burros. He voted against barring federal funding that allows imports of polar bear hunting trophies from Canada. He did not support funds for the enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act, the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act, or to help animals in disasters.
