SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff’s Office was looking for thieves Tuesday who stole a horse and then slaughtered him about two blocks from his home in Southwest Ranches.

About 7 a.m. Saturday, David Sangiao-Parga told deputies Marco, his 8-year-old retired racehorse, had been stolen on Friday from Just Perfect Landscaping at 5345 Southwest 210th Terrace. Marco was rescued after breaking his leg several years ago.

The thieves climbed a fence and led the horse away from the stables along a canal bank on the back of the property, said deputies. A second horse was left behind.

The stolen horse was found about two blocks away at South Eastern Fish Farms about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Deputies said the hind quarters and two large sections of the horse’s back had been removed.

“It’s hard, I think, for people who don’t own a horse to understand because it’s a different kind of bond you have with pets,” said Sangiao-Parga. “They have, you know, it’s almost like another family member.”

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call BSO at 954-765-4321.

  2. There are millions if illegal aliens and legal migrants that eat horses in the countries they come from living in Florida. These people are doing this for the money. They sell the meat right from their homes to their friends and relatives. I think the butcher shops that these migrants run also sell it on the side. There are places back in the swamps and brush that fatten up horses they buy at auctions and butcher them for the black market trade. From the photos I have seen they feed them scraps from behind markets and bakeries to fatten them up. There have been rescues of these horses. They also sell pigs that they kill to their own people. Nasty looking places with flies all over the place. Keep in mind a lot of the customers are also Cubans. This is the way they live where they come from so they don’t mind the flies.

  4. So sad that Florida is getting the reputation as the horse slaughter capital of the U,.S. Never thought I’d see this type of unbelievable activity in Florida or, the U.S. Many of my friends have said, “Watch your horses. Do you know what’s going on in Florida?”.
