Cabrera gets five years jail for Florida horse butchery

Horsetalk reports:

Santiago Cabrera, 20, of Hialeah, was sentenced to five years in prison for his part in butchering two horses last year. Last month he admitted charges of animal cruelty and armed burglary arising from the killings.

Co-accused Luis Cordero, 19, has denied charges arising from the same incidents and faces trial on January 31. South Florida SPCA president Jeanette Jordan said she should be happy about Cabrera going to jail. “But, frankly, there are no winners here,” she said.

“Nothing can alter the fact that these poor beautiful creatures suffered brutal, gruesome deaths.

“Nothing can alter the fact that Santiago Cabrera has ruined his own life and that of his family.

“Nothing can alter the fact that dozens of other horses here have suffered the same awful fate.”

Jordan said horses are still being slaughtered for their meat in South Florida.
