Shocking photos show the moment a fox is dragged out of its hole by hunters and shot in front of children as young as FIVE

“THIS DESPICABLE HEINOUS CRIME MUST STOP….PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION BELOW. How can anyone say that chasing an animal with the intention to kill it is a normal act! These POS get a buzz out of chasing a small animal, purely to kill it…it’s the thrill of the chase; & they love it!!”

  • Images, released by anti-hunt campaigners, show men setting dog on fox
  • They then use spades to dig creature out of a hole before shooting it dead
  • Critics have today condemned ‘cruel’ and ‘horrific’ incident 
  • But Countryside Alliance say the men acted legally under Hunting Act

This is the moment a fox was dragged out of a hole and shot dead while children as young as five watched on.

The images, released by anti-hunt campaigners, show a group of terriermen setting their dog on the  creature.

The fox tries attempts to hide in a badger’s sett – but the three adults fire into the ground and use spades to dig it out.

These images show the moment a group of men unearthed and shot a fox as three young children watched on

A farmer who captured the killing on camera says the group then called over three children to show them the remains.

The men can then be seen walking away with two dead animals. It is unclear where and how the second fox was killed.

The shocking incident happened shortly after a hunt on December 28 by the Modbury Harriers, which rides in south Devon.

The League Against Cruel Sports has handed the photos over to the RSPCA and asked them to investigate it as a possible breach of the Hunting Act..

The law bans hunting foxes with a pack of hounds – however it doesn’t cover the use of dogs to flush out animals underground.

The farmer, who has asked not to be identified, said the fox was initially chased across the field by hounds.

The Countryside Alliance said there was ‘no question’ the behaviour was legal – describing the killing as ‘professional and humane’.

“Just read the above comment on the picture…how can any sane animal lover, who owns just a dog or cat; say this is normal!! I see no difference in this than I do inhumane POS chasing & killing elephants or rhino…they are all sentient beings FFS!!”

The huntsmen moved on but before it could climb out of the badger’s set three men with guns and spades arrived – with three children following close behind.

The farmer said: ‘I sat there in disbelief – how could those guys think any of what had played out was fit for young children to witness?

‘I watched in horror as a whole pack of hounds poured into our neighbour’s field then piled into our meadow.

They made that hideous blood-curdling squealing – known as ‘speaking’ – which means they are on the scent of a fox.

‘I saw a beautiful vixen flash across the meadow and disappear into an old badger sett on my neighbour’s farm.

‘At the top of the hill I saw a couple of guys carrying spades and a terrier on a lead. They were going to dig her out and kill her right then and there.

‘The men came down and filled in the exit holes to stop the fox escaping and then called the children over to watch as they dug out and killed the young vixen.’

Sick Neanderthals!!

The farmer said the three men came across a second badger inside the hole which they also shot dead as the children craned their necks to see what was happening.

He added: ‘This is the dirty underbelly of fox hunting, the bit they don’t like even their followers to see.

‘But I was disgusted to see the terriermen had brought three youngsters to watch – one was only about five years old.

The farmer, who keeps a flock of 140 breeding ewes and a few chickens, is strongly anti-hunting and has complained about huntsmen trespassing on his land.

oe Duckworth, chief executive of the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS), said: ‘This horrific incident of animal cruelty shows not only a total disregard for the dogs and foxes but also for the welfare of the children.’

The Countryside Alliance, however, said there was ‘no question’ the behaviour was legal – describing the killing as ‘professional and humane’.

Spokesman Tim Bonner said the outrage merely demonstrated that outsiders do not ‘understand the realities of the countryside and country life’.

Mr Bonner said he had spoken to the hunt, who told him the killing had been carried out as ‘pest control” with the permission of the landowner.

He said: ‘The children were not in the hole – they were close by – and as far as we are concerned it was a totally professional operation and nothing which should upset anyone.

‘They were using the terrier work exemption and properly, professionally and humanely managing the killing of those two foxes.

‘There would be plenty of children of that sort of age involved in pheasant shoots and ferreting.

‘The vast majority of children eat meat and at the end of the day it is a dead animal.’

The Hunting act:-

The Hunting Act came in to force in February 2005 and was passed under the 1997 Labour government. It bans hunting any wild mammal  – including foxes, deer and hares -with dogs in England and Wales.

Under the Act it is completely legal to ‘flush out’ – i.e. coax an animal from a hole or a sett – with dogs.

It is also legal to drag hunt with hounds. This is when the dogs are trained to follow an artificial scent and is now common practice across the country.

Hunting mammals with dogs was banned in Scotland two years earlier under the Protection of Wild Mammals Act 2002.

It is still legal to hunt in Northern Ireland.

Breaking the law is a summary offence. Those found guilty of doing so would be fined.

There were 181 convictions under the Hunting Act up to the end of 2010.

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Breaking News: Pork Industry Turns Pigs Into Shit Eating Cannibals

Comments Off

 “Please sign the petition below; no animal should be treated in this horrific way, then sold to the public!”

20th February - Posted By Matt Rice

TodayThe Humane Society of the United States released horrifying hidden-camera video footage of pigs being fed diarrhea and the ground up intestines of their own piglets at a factory farm in Kentucky – Iron Maiden Hog Farm.

Although the practice of feeding pig guts and shit to other pigs is common on industrial farms across the country, it is illegal under state law

The video, which was profiled by The New York Times, also shows mother pigs crammed into filthy metal cages so small they can’t even turn around or lie down comfortably for nearly their entire lives. Seemingly without irony, the facility is named after a medieval torture device by which human victims were confined in a metal box barely larger than their own bodies.

Viewer Discretion – Pigs Suffer at IRON MAIDEN

Published on 20 Feb 2014

An undercover exposé of Iron Maiden Farms in Owensboro, Kentucky revealed that sows confined in cramped cages known as gestation crates were fed intestines from ground up piglets who had recently succumbed to a highly contagious diarrhoeal disease.

Like a medieval torture device, the use of gestation crates by the pork industry is perhaps the cruellest form institutionalized animal abuse in existence.

In fact, these crates are so cruel they have been banned in nine states and the entire European Union. In the last couple years, more than 60 major food providers, including Costco, Target, Safeway, Kroger, and others, have committed to phasing gestation crates out of their supply chains. Even major pork producers like Smithfield and Hormel have recognized the need to do away with cruel crates.

Unfortunately, Walmart, the largest pork retailer in the world, continues to support factory farms that keep pigs in gestation crates. Multiple undercover investigations by Mercy For Animals at Walmart pork suppliers have revealed thousands of pigs crammed inside these metal torture boxes. As the largest retailer in the world, Walmart has the power and the responsibility to put an end to this horror once and for all.

Please visit WalmartCruelty.com to take action and find out more. OR sign the petition here:-http://www.walmartcruelty.com/#petition

While grocery retailers can help put an end to some of the most egregiously cruel factory farming practices, consumers can also help prevent needless cruelty to animals every time they sit down to eat by adopting a healthy and humane, vegan diet.

City Council Vote Means Circus Animals Still Welcome In Worcester

Comments Off

“We have seen far too many undercover investigations, showing animals being beaten, slapped or whipped, even struck with electric cattle prods; to know that an animal’s life in the circus is not a good one. Animals do not belong in cages or shackled when not performing! They are forced to entertain the public by doing unnatural & stupid tricks, that can be detrimental to their health! Human safety is also an issue, when animals can’t take it any more & attack! There are plenty videos on YouTube showing trainers being mauled by big cats in the ring & elephants that have trampled their handlers, then charged the crowds looking for a way out; which sadly ends in tragic fatalities for the public & animal!! I personally think NO animal on earth should be forced to entertain humans for monetary gain…it’s wrong & immoral!!”

Also read another post I have added toward the end:- CAPS welcomes Scottish consultation on wild animals in circuses’.

“Please sign just a few of the many petitions to ban wildlife in circuses: at the end of this post or on the Petition Tab above. If you’re in any doubt as to how elephants are trained; watch the video & share it, education is the key; what we share, will make more care!!

By Nick Kotsopoulos 04/02/2014

WORCESTER — The circus, complete with its lions, tigers and elephants, is still welcome in this city. 

Don't Support Circus Cruelty

The City Council Tuesday night rejected a call for the drafting of an ordinance that would have banned the use of wild and exotic animals in travelling shows and circuses that perform here. The vote was 8-3, with Councilor-at-Large Konstantina B. Lukes, District 2 Councilor Philip P. Palmieri and District 4 Councilor Sarai Rivera voting in opposition.

Mrs. Lukes, who advocated for the ban as the past chairman of the council’s Public Health and Human Services Committee, said the intent of her order was not to ban circuses in the city, but rather to ban the use of animals that are subject to extinction, such as elephants.

She said circuses exploit such animals for profit and she believes it is “time to right a wrong” by banning their use in circuses that come here. 

But Councillor-at-Large Michael T. Gaffney, who pushed to have a council vote taken on the matter after it had been tabled last month, said the proposal was not just about banning elephants in circuses.

He said he believes that animal-rights advocates would eventually move to have animals banned in other things, such as petting zoos. 

“This is the first step of saying we shouldn’t have animals period,” Mr. Gaffney said. 

Meanwhile, District 5 Councillor Gary Rosen argued it was time for the council to put the issue to rest.

He said the council had become mired down talking about whether it should ban a legal business such as a circus at a time when it has so many other important issues requiring its attention.

Mr. Rosen said if people object to wild and exotic animals performing at circuses held in the city, then they simply shouldn’t go to them. (What a knob head!!!)

“What are we doing even talking about this?” Mr. Rosen asked. “I think we’re foolish to be talking about banning a legal business from coming to Worcester. If people have a problem with the circus, then they should stay away, but they shouldn’t tell others they can’t go.” 

Last year, the City Council Public Health and Human Services Committee asked the Law Department to review a model ordinance drafted by Born Free USA, a national animal advocacy group. 

ele1

As part of its recommendation, the committee has also asked the city administration to draft an ordinance along the lines of the model ordinance that would keep out circuses and travelling shows that feature elephants, tigers, lions and chimpanzees. 

At the request of Mayor Joseph M. Petty, the council tabled the proposal until it received a report from the city administration on the impact of such a ban.

In a report that went before the council Tuesday night, City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. said the proposal raises a number of concerns, including legal issues since it would ban an activity permitted by state and federal law.

City Solicitor David M. Moore said it is his opinion that any municipal ordinance prohibiting the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses staged in the city would be “invalidated” as pre-empted by federal and state law. 

He said it would also trigger contractual issues between the city and SMG the company that manages the city-owned DCU Center (The DCU Center is an indoor arena and convention center complex, located in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts, USA).

SMG reports that the circus has an economic impact of $1.5 million during those years it comes to the DCU Center.

That economic impact includes ticket revenue, concessions, merchandise and parking for the approximately 20,000 people who attend the circus shows at the DCU Center.

Ms. Rivera said if Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was not allowed to come back to the city, she believes that families would spend their entertainment dollars elsewhere in the community.

“That money will be spent in the local economy whether the circus is in town or not,” she said. “Families will find a place to take their children. Putting dollars to such (animal) cruelty; we have to ask ourselves what kind of a community we are? This is a serious issue and something we need to consider.”

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014  CAPS welcomes Scottish consultation on wild animals in circuses

Yesterday afternoon, it was announced that the Scottish Government has opened a new consultation to gauge public opinion on the use of wild animals in circuses. A CAPS spokesperson welcomed the news, saying “this presents us with an opportunity to move a step closer to a UK-wide ban on the cruel practice of exploiting wild animals in the circus ring”.

England has already promised to bring in a ban, and Wales has also shown willing to do the same. CAPS has worked with campaign partners for many years to encourage Scotland to follow suit, with a full public consultation forming the first step in that process.

Said Liz Tyson, CAPS Director:

“We encourage our Scottish supporters to get involved in the process and join us in calling for an outright ban on the use of wild animals in travelling circuses in Scotland. These measures are long overdue and this is the opportunity for compassionate members of the public to make a difference”.

CAPS has presented evidence to the Scottish Government in recent years on this issue and will be putting together a detailed response to the consultation and working with campaign partners towards a ban

The consultation closes on the 16th April and all relevant information can be found by visiting this websitehttp://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/farmingrural/Agriculture/animal-welfare/AnimalWelfare/Circuses

Animals in the circus have not been asked to be there. They are stolen from the wild, babies ripped from their mothers and beaten into submission to perform. Elephants live a majority of their lives in chains. Tigers are crammed in into tiny cages for months on end. This atrocity must end now and we are putting a stop to it.

Video Gallery: Cruelty Uncovered At Korean ‘Monkey School’

Comments Off

“This is just disgusting & so very cruel! Using animals for entertainment should be banned all over the world; seeing this just breaks my heart. Please watch the videos below; then sign the petition!”

Updated: 14 February 2014

An investigation by ADI into a Korean “attraction” that forces monkeys to perform in degrading shows has revealed shocking conditions behind the scenes.
At the Monkey School, which is located in Gamgyori in South Korea, ADI found:

  • Monkeys kept in squalid and barren conditions, including mothers and their young babies
  • Traumatized animals exhibiting abnormal behaviour, such as constantly spinning around and biting themselves
  • Some monkeys isolated in tiny cages, others crammed together
  • Animals hit during training and dragged along the floor
  • Disgraceful contempt for a monkey as it tries to escape with its hands tied behind its back, falling onto its face, as workers laugh at its predicament and terror

These disturbing findings highlight a life of extreme neglect and cruelty for these intelligent and sensitive animals – an all too common occurrence for performing animals which ADI has revealed time and again, suffer terribly behind the scenes.

On seeing the footage, Sharon Shaw, Director of Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary in the UK said: “All aspects of life for primates at Monkey School are appalling, from the inadequate and atrocious housing conditions, the physical and psychological torture, to the lack of empathy and respect shown by the staff. The poor animals who are unlucky enough to live there endure a barbaric, unnatural life.”

During the public shows, monkeys are made to wear clothes, ride around on a motorbike, do handstands, jump through hoops and respond to commands as directed.

It is shameful that these intelligent, social and emotional primates are terrorized and forced to undertake such degrading tricks – especially in light of modern understanding of primates and their use of tools, language and self-awareness – abilities which, at one time, were considered to be unique to humans. This also sends the worst possible message to children about respect for the other intelligent species that share our planet and how we should treat, and protect, animals.

The terrible suffering of the animals at Monkey School – and establishments like them – must stop.

ADI is working with our campaign partner Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) to encourage the Government and people of Korea to reject the cruel and unnecessary use of animals in entertainment.

We are supporting new legislation, the ‘Zoo Act’, proposed by Congresswoman Chang which, if passed, would ban animal performances and set minimum welfare standards and inspections for places that exhibit captive animals.

Highlighting the need for the legislation, Congresswoman Hanna Chang: “As seen in the ADI footage, it is hard to imagine the pain that monkeys have to go through for humans every day. This clearly shows that it is now time to have regulations to monitor the welfare of animals in captivity in Korea.”

Congresswoman Chang’s proposal has strong support from animal protection organizations. ADI and KARA have joined over 80 national and international groups in sending a joint letter to the Government stating support for the draft law.

It is time to end the exploitation of, and brutality towards, animals used for entertainment.

Help us campaign to end animal shows in Korea, and around the world.

Take action!

Justice Served For 11 Year Old Boy’s In Kitten Killing – Yeah Right!!

Comments Off

After two court delays, psychological evaluation, and six kittens dead, all of a sudden, there’s no evidence the boys killed the kittens while being born to the mother cat.

All of a sudden, witnesses heard glass shattering around an apartment building, when initially, they reported seeing the two boys laughing and pelting the kittens with rocks.

All of a sudden, it doesn’t matter if the kittens showed signs of torture and died in the hands of veterinarians who tried to save them.

All of a sudden, it was unclear when the kittens died because no autopsy was performed.

The boys admitted throwing rocks at the mother cat, but didn’t see the kittens.

Really?

I just don’t get it.

How could the psychological evaluation not show any signs of an underlying psychological issue? Who is this doctor?

Defense Attorneys for the boys said their clients have been traumatized since this incident. They are stressed, scared, and depressed…good. Just how the mother cat and her kittens felt when they were being jokesters throwing rock after rock at helpless animals.

“Good Kids?” No. Troubled kids who need long term help.

Stacia Newman of Nevada Political Action For Animals, and animal advocates were hoping for the maximum penalty, which includes probation until 21 years old.

Instead Judge William Voy sentenced the boys to 12 months probation, 80 hours of community service, attend school, no further contact with one another, and write an essay about how to properly treat animals.

How about writing an essay on “How we got away with pelting 6 kittens to death with rocks.”

“Is that all that dogs life is worth, a measly $2,000 & 5 year ban on owning another dog…what a load of crap & what if the next dog pisses him off & he decides to shoot him too!! Poor Buddy had over 50 pellets taken out of his face & neck back in March…I think the sentencing on this case is so F-ing wrong…it stinks!!” R.I.P Buddy x (sorry playing catch up)

Follow up on story Nov 5th: Sudbury judge hands down sentence in high-profile ‘Buddy’ case after Simeon Smith makes guilty plea

Buddy, a German Shepherd mix dog, was found on the side of a Sudbury, Ont. area road after sustaining gun shot wounds to the face. He was rescued and treated at Walden Animal Hospital, but later died from heart failure. (Walden Animal Hospital)

A Sudbury area man has been given a $2,000 fine and a five-year ban on owning a dog after pleading guilty to animal cruelty charges.

On Monday morning, the case of Buddy — a German Shepherd mixed-breed dog found shot in the face and neck and left to die on the side of a St. Charles area road — was put to rest in a Sudbury court room.

 Simeon Smith did not appear in court for his sentencing, but earlier pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges in the shooting of the dog in March.

The dog later died of heart failure in an animal hospital.

Smith was charged with four counts of animal cruelty under the Ontario SPCA act, including one count each of causing the animal to be in distress, permitting the animal to be in distress, failing to provide adequate and appropriate medical attention and failing to humanely kill an animal.

Justice Pierre Leclerc issued the fine and the ban, along with a stipulation the SPCA may investigate his property during the five-year dog ownership ban

Sheep butchered to death in ‘barbaric’ farm raids, England

Comments Off

“WTF…I can only think that whoever is doing it, knows about sheep & either has a grudge against this farmer, or has been offered a good price if they can get hold of these rare sheep cuts! It can’t be religious, or they would have cut their necks, surely? They must be bloody desperate for money to cut the legs off live sheep though…Sick heartless bastards…I would also say that they would be pretty well covered in blood, so somebody knows someone, who is coming home covered in blood…plus, how do these people know the animals aren’t infected etc. there taking a big health risk too?”

“If you know who it is, please do the right thing, money isn’t everything…wouldn’t you rather have a clear conscience, & be able to sleep at night; instead of waiting for that dreaded knock at the door? because the police will find whoever has done this, if you don’t want to be dragged down with them…make the call!” 

THIEVES cut off the legs of 10 sheep while they were still alive in a series of raids on a farm in Greater Manchester.

Sixty five-year-old farmer William Perkins found his butchered animals, including several pregnant ewes, dead with their back legs removed at the hip.

This is the fourth night-time attack on the Stockport farm in the last fortnight.

It is believed a dog was used to round-up his flock before they were attacked and the incident has left Mr Perkins and his wife Joan devastated.

The farmhouse is away from the fields and the couple have been using their CCTVsystem to try to catch the criminals in the act.

Picture of black welsh mountain sheep

Mr Perkins said: “It is horrific and barbaric but very surgical – they know about butchering and have cut the legs off 10 sheep at the hip bone.

“Someone has cut them off in a field in pitch black and also knows about sheep as none that have been killed are over two-years-old, as beyond that age they are mutton.

“Every night, I wake up and have a look at our CCTV to check if anyone is there. The people who have done this are inhuman to be able to cut the legs off an animal while it is still alive. To see what has happened the following day has been a massive shock.”

Mr Perkins, who lives with his wife and son David, has been breeding sheep for 20 years and now has around 70 remaining.

Castlemilk moorits, Portlands, black Welsh mountain sheep and Hebrideans are among the rare breeds lost.

Police are warning other farmers to be vigilant and Insp Stephen Gilbertson said the thieves have gone to a lot of trouble.

Video:Dog Being Abandoned On Road

Comments Off

(VIDEO – POSTED ON FACE BOOK & TWITTER – IN CASE THE LINK DOESN’T WORK)

“I found this video on-line, but aside from the date I don’t know anything else. However, Google translated the page from Portuguese to English, so I suppose it could be in Portugal; or it could be that someone from Portugal just reposted it! 

” On Sept. 29, on a dark night, one car is following another, when the car in front starts to break, the following car slows down too; however, the car following has a dash cam on board & captures the whole upsetting scene. The car in front slow’s to a stop, someone gets out with a dog…then precedes to drive off without the dog!!!”

“How utterly F-ing heartbreaking; not ashamed to say I cried. Firstly, if they didn’t want the dog, why not take the dog to a shelter etc.? Secondly, abandoning a dog on a  road (actually looks like a small town, there are houses either side for a short distance) is utterly stupid…obviously the owner had no heart & no brain.

You would think the driver of the car with the dash cam, that caught the distressing scene, would do something, wouldn’t you?  My instinct would have been to get the dog off the road & speed off to catch the car’s registration in front; then go to the police & show them the video…Sadly that’s not what happens?

See for yourself…the video doesn’t need a ‘viewer discretion’ warning…but you may need some tissues..hold & click link below, I  will also post separately to face book & Twitter, just in case some can’t access the video via the link (sorry I couldn’t attach it either).

http://www.anda.jor.br/15/10/2012/video-mostra-cao-sendo-abandonado-no-meio-da-rua

There are some real f-ing shits that live in this world, no compassion or conscience they care about nothing & know one, except themselves, their cars, their possessions etc.” 

“I would rather live in a f-ing shed with my animals & have a heart bursting  full of compassion, empathy & love for all sentient beings; than anything else in the world, thank you! 

“Nothing justifies abandoning an animal to fend for itself; absolutely nothing & no excuses for doing so either!”

However, I am showing it in case anyone recognises the car or the dog. Has a neighbour, who’s dog that looks like the one on the video; i.e. a German Shepherd mix, vanished? Perhaps someone may note the place where it happened, if so, could be that the dog is in the towns animal shelter or that some kind soul offered it a home…I just want to know it’s ok!!

“Which ever is the case, I have been praying very hard that the dog is ok; it would be amazing if someone could tell us how & where the dog is!. The thought of it being hit by a car & laying in a ditch, or starving to death, is just too much to bear; so I’m trying to remain positive…I’m also praying that the car following actually caught up with the car who ditched the dog & got his licence plate for the police! “

9 Dehorned Rhinos Found Alive

Comments Off

Johannesburg – Fourteen rhino have been found dehorned in two provinces since Thursday, police said on Sunday. Three of them had been killed.

Eleven of the rhino were found at the Hartzhoogte game lodge in Amalia near Schweizer-Reneke in the North West, Captain Paul Ramaloko saidin a statement.

(AFP)

The game farmer found the first carcass on Thursday after he followed a trail of blood. Following the discovery, the farmer searched his farm and found 10 de-horned rhino, nine of them still alive.

The two dead rhino are believed to have been killed almost a month ago.

The nine surviving rhino were taken to a place of safety. The estimated loss to the game farmer was about R5 million.

In the Eastern Cape three rhino were found dehorned at a game farm near Kenton-on-Sea.

“A driver was taking tourists on a game drive when he noticed three rhino in distress,” Ramaloko said.

The driver called the police and a veterinarian.

“When they arrived at the scene, the police noticed that one of the three rhino was dead. Two rhino were in a critical condition,” Ramaloko said.

The rhinos had been darted before their horns were removed.

The two wounded rhino were being treated. Police were investigating.

VIDEO Viewer Discretion Advised: Horse butchered in Miami-Dade County, remains dumped

Comments Off

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – Animal activists have made a disturbing discovery; the slaughter of two horses whose remains were found dumped in Southwest Miami-Dade, months apart.

Thursday night, investigators from the Animal Recovery Mission found more than 150-pieces of a horse in the area of SW 81st Terrace and 123rd Avenue after being called by a neighbor.

Friday morning, while they were investigating the scene of the slaughtered horse, an employee with the Animal Recovery Mission found the remains of  a second horse in the same area that was dumped there several months ago.  All that was left were the bones.

However, there were serious signs of abuse on the first horse found Thursday night.

This horse was beaten, stabbed to death, butchered alive, it really suffered,” said Richard Couto from the Animal Recovery Mission.

Couto said the remains of the second horse had been there  awhile.

Some person is using this as a dump site for butchered horses,” said Couto. “It was dumped here a while ago and covered in concrete and construction debris, enough to conceal it for the past three or four months.”

Couto said the selling of illegal horse meat is a multi-million dollar industry especially in Florida.

People are eating this for medical purposes thinking it cures cancers, helps the side effects of chemotherapy, helps with blood disorders and males are eating this thinking that it helps with the libido. Unbelievably, it actually is the reverse,” said Couto.

“The drugs administered to these animals toxifies the meat so whoever ate this horse, this horse meat, isn’t probably feeling too good right now.”:) good, I hope they have the worst shit’s ever & it makes him ill for rest of his/her life… serves them right…my horses has wormers several times a year, plus booster injections that all horses are supposed to have! On top of that, Bute & injections for any pain or antibiotic etc. for any bodily injury. But on English passports, one for each horse, there is a section you can tick if you don’t want them to end up as food for some rich lazy fat git in Europe!

Couto said they don’t know where the horse came from or if it was stolen but he said he believes it was a cared for pet because it had brand new horse shoes and was under the age two. Each time he finds a slaughtered horse, it’s a tough sight.

It’s awful every time you come to one of these scenes especially when you see signs of serious abuse. When you don’t see a bullet hole in the head of an animal in the head of a horse you know how much he suffered,” explained Couto.

Police are investigating and no arrests have been made.“That’s because they are so bloody sneaky, they have looks out, for when they’re dumping a body or cutting one up…they are rarely caught in the act. Although I have seen Richard in some bizarre disguises…trying to get undercover video to aid arrests

This Video Link goes with above (sorry, I can’t import certain formats):-http://miami.cbslocal.com/latest-videos?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=7915522

“Having supported ‘ARM’ due to my love of horses; I wanted to show you a video from last year…this is still happening RIGHT NOW…news videos will only show the aftermath, which is bad enough; but I wanted you to see the horses before slaughter (if you can watch the video)!!”

“If I could get my hands on the bastard responsible, well lets just say they would be walking with glass shoved down each finger nail, & forced to walk on their them…because that’s how the poor mare in the video must have felt…poor girl. I also know if Richard could, he would have put the mare out of her misery asap…but he had to abide by the law…not like the MF’s that left these horses hanging around…just waiting for the right moment, when nobody’s around…so they can be slaughtered!!. Jail is too good for these evil abominations!”

“This hurts me more, than seeing a horse that has already died, which is upsetting enough! But being a horse owner for over 40 years, watching them suffer, knowing the serious amount of pain they are in, is just the most horrifying, gut wrenchingly hardest thing for me to watch…so yes my tears are flowing as I write this; even though I have seen it before…it always makes me cry for them & want to go cuddle my horses.”

“I’m also showing it, hoping it will raise awareness to what’s happening right now! If you live in the area & come across a scene similar to what’s in the video…you know to contact police; people don’t just dump their horses, if they can sell them on the black market, for meat & there are plenty of ex race horses & other thoroughbreds, due to over breeding!”

“This barbaric practice will only stop when people keep reporting these hideouts  to ARM or the police.” 

“PLEASE, PLEASE USE VIEWER DISCRETION”

(I’ve probably made it sound worse than it is I don’t want people having a go at me!! ) 

“THERE IS NO BLOOD or GUTS…WHICH OBVIOUSLY UPSET PEOPLE…THIS VIDEO SHOW’S HOW THE HORSES SUFFER, WELL  BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN TOUCHED WITH A KNIFE!”!
