    They are greedy, sociopathic thieves. At least that is what is wrong with the thieves and killers of this poor horse.

    These stories make me nervous. I have seen people selling 'beef' out of coolers in the back of their pickups. It is amazing what people will fall for these days.

    Re: Trunking. "But it's the culture." This is beyond revolting.

    sweet looking?

    Now, don't get me wrong:
    Stealing somebody's horse is disgusting, killing it for the choice parts is revolting, and leaving the spar parts for the BO/HO to find defies all description!

    But 'sweet looking' is about as lousy as a horse description as it gets!

    And somewhere along the line, if a small legal abattoir was available, with a little butcher shop...much of that would be avoided!

    And let's not muddy the waters with 'trunking'
    I am sure the passengers of those rides have fake vaginas at hand as well...
    But other than prejudice and such, it isn't related.

    Just a little problem with your theory...the horse didn't belong to whoever butchered it...so they would have to steal it first, then take it to a local abattoir without proof of ownership.

    Oh come off it! "sweet looking" is just a term used to describe the horse. The thing is just standing there having a bite of grass, rather sweet looking if you ask me.
    AND..the horse was STOLEN, then chopped up, how does having a legal butcher shop stop a thief from stealing a horse? I also am not clear on your fake vagina reference.....

    People harming any animals, but especially slaughtering a horse like that, are beyond revolting. I can think of several punishments that they should have to endure if caught (preferably at the hands of horse owners). The sad thing is that even if they are caught, they probably won't receive a fitting punishment, as nothing allowable by law would fit that crime.

    So scary, and so sad.

    Not true. It's a whole other world down here. And as people have pointed out, ALL of the butchered horses (from the past several years) have first been stolen. So, no, a local abbatoir would have NO impact on these incidents.

    I'm in Miami. I own a horse. And these stories always terrify me. People are so sick.

    Well, they're related in the fact that a LOT of people around here have zero respect for animals. It's so disheartening.

    You can get free horses on CL. Do you really think the thugs that would steal a horse and slaughter it rather than go get a free horse, would buy a horse/get a free one and take it to an abattoir to be humanely put down and slaughtered?

    The fake vagina comment is just weird. Are you drunk?

    That is an assumption without proof.

    As I recall a lot of the problems in that area are illegal backyard operations, including all sorts of animals, not necessarily acquired illegally, just process unsanitary and not in compliance with any FDA/USDA rules. Meaning also that the humane rules are not followed.

    The stolen horses of course make the news, because it is such a vial act. But it does not mean free or cheap horses are not processed. Legally bought.

    The problem is - beside the stolen animals - that there is little regard for food safety.

    In other words, you can probably take it for granted that there was horse meat sold in the time between the last reported theft and this case.

    An assumption without proof??? Have you read the news stories on this subject? Believe me, not only have I read all the many, many articles in the Miami Herald, watched all the local news stories on it, seen the CNN coverage on it a few years ago, I LIVE it. We horse owners down here have been pretty scared for the past several years because, yes, ALL those animals in the news were stolen and then butchered alive. With a chainsaw.

    The illegal slaughterhouses are a whole separate issue of which I am well aware. Go to the Animal Recovery Mission's website and you can see videos of them. Yes, they are a major problem in and of themselves, but people stealing horses and chainsaw-ing their legs off is the issue we're discussing here.

    Frizzle, I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like for you and others in your area, who have to worry about their animals falling prey to these types of crimes. I would worry myself sick if I were in that type of situation. I hope these criminals are caught and punished to the full extent of the law.
