Second, there would be NO black market for horse meat if you could buy it in a grocery store. There is a huge ethnic population in Florida and most of them are from places that have no tabu about eating horses. It would be an economic benefit for everyone involved if horses could be slaughtered and sold for human consumption.
Finally, I have to say what a bunch of idiots these guys are. If they had gone to a sale barn and bought a horse for $50 and taken it out to the everglades and slaughtered it nobody would have given a hoot. Instead the ignorant fools had to destroy someones property.
About the 50 dollar horses they also need to Cleanly
kill if they're going to do that, cause they feel pain as well, and it needs to be done quick. Which is why I now know that slaughterhouses are a good thing.
And about them moving to humans, I agree kevin, I don't really think they are going to move to humans, cause they kill the horses for the money. You can't get money for human meat. Just a lifetime jail sentence.
