According to a report filed by the group, three of the horses were put down by an auction employee. The fourth one died. Continue reading >>

  1. He is the work of the devil, he has made the devil very happy, its called sin, and its called greed,and looks like the lord is taking him down.

  2. In 2010 Alaska passed a bill into law that makes acts of cruelty directed at animals a felony on the first offense. It’s time to get this law passed in every state in the lower 48. Also contact your district reps about not only passing this law but ask them to consider adding a amendment to the your states constitution banning horse slaughter plants in your state. Other states have banned horse slaughter, this is a state matter not federal.

  3. Worthless piece of human trash this man is, what took so long to bring this garbage to Justice???????/…….I dont like being so hateful but this man has taken me to the Limit, and just look at that POOR Horse , it makes my blood boil , what kind of demented SCUM would do that to an innocent Horse?????/That is not what the higher power imagined…..

  4. At least this is something! Where the heck are the “inspectors” that should be checking on this guy?? Why do we always have to rely on “undercover” animal right groups?? Because they don’t want to see it and actually have to do something about it.

  5. IF ANYONE DESERVES TO GO TO PRISON THIS MAN DOES AND I HOPE HE GET THE FULL COURSE. I AM CERTAIN HIS PRISON FRIENDS WILL LOVE HIM. THE HORSE KILLER REALLY WANT THE PRISONERS TO EAT HORSE MEAT.

  6. Please don’t even get me started on this worthless slim ball….To see those poor helpless animals be starved to death makes me sick…..12 years is not enough for this piece of dirt called a human being….I can never understand the mentality or lack of that these worthless dirt balls have….This slim ball needs to be punished to the fullest extent and then be put in a cell and starved to death…..No sympathy here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. This is what anyone who condones killing horses for their meat, bringing this despicable business to their communities can expect. These types of cruelties, and much more, go hand in hand with the horse slaughter business. Horse meat is ugly. La viande de cheval, ça pue. Carne di cavallo è brutto.
