I cried when I read this.
That poor little foal :(
And I feel for the owners. Who would do something like that?
I hope those people get caught.

I think the reports of horsemeat selling for 20 -40 dollars per pound a little hard to believe. If they were getting that much money for it they could just buy the horses and slaughter them on private property. I would bet just about anywhere in the country you can go to a livestock auction and buy a truckload of horses for less than $200 each so why take the risk of going to jail. Either the market isn't what is being quoted in the story or they are just sickos that get off on it somehow.

I live in FL, lol, and those people were caught. There were also some people MUCH closer to me (in the same zipcode) and they were caught as well.
