Latest figure show shocking rise in horse slaughter figures
Posted 8 February 2011
An article in The Observer on 6 February 2011 revealed a shocking rise in the number of horses slaughtered in the UK in 2010. Some 7,933 horses were killed in abattoirs last year, their meat most likely destined for human consumption abroad. It is essential that the government steps in to curb the unregulated and unabated breeding of animals, viewed as mere commodities, by the racing and pet breeding industries.
