I hate to be mean and petty, but I hope that he gets a rude awakening in prison. I used to watch Animal Planet a lot, and I remember a year or so ago, there was a case similar if not the same one on Animal Cops where a mare was found slaughtered with her live baby next to her, and I was just horrified that someone could do that to a mare with a young baby at her side, while the baby was watching. They have no compassion what so ever.

Horrible! I would love to see him get in a prison fight and get his arse kicked. That'd be nice. I don't care if it's rude or not, he deserves it.

It happens there because there is a very lucrative black market for horse meat.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

That'd make me kinda paranoid to have live in Florida, and own horses there. :/

People who are like this shouldn't be allowed back in the outside world. If they do these terrible deeds to horses then who says they won't eventually do it to other humans? This is unforgivable behavior that the men of this slaughter did. Why would they let someone willing to murder a living being back out? I watched an episode of Untamed and Uncut where a mare was being abused by some men when she decided to fight back. I forgot where it was located but I was happy and proud that the mare left the men on the concrete bleeding in the alley. Humans can be so brutal but in this case the mare taught the men what brutal was.

First, I think this is a pretty just sentence. Five years is plenty for killing a few horses. I don't know if he will try the same thing on humans (I doubt it) but you can't punish someone for something they might do in the future.

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.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

About the 50 dollar horses they also need to Cleanly kill if they're gonna 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 gonna move to humans, cause they kill the horses for the money. You can't get money for human meat. Just a lifetime jail sentence.

LOL I wasn't talking about selling human meat. What I meant was that if they're willing to kill a horse then who knows they might be willing to murder a human. I doubt that they would but that's a possibility with the kind of people who live in the world these days.

Well I know you weren't talking about human meat. I just don't think they'd move to humans. I still think they are sick though. They could've atleast done what Kevin said and go buy a cheap horse and done that, with a clean kill and not torture it to get it's meat.

People don't change. The kind of people that live in the world today are the same as the people that lived at any other time. It's hard to say what motivates people to do the things that they do but don't for a minute believe that people in bygone eras were any better or worse than they are now.
