▶ THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN HORSEMEAT: A BRUTAL AND SECRETIVE TRADE - INVESTIGATION
Few Americans are aware that our country's horses are being exported and slaughtered abroad to supply other nations' taste for a meat that's shunned at home...
This grisly scene in a Mexican abattoir offers a rare glimpse into a brutal and secretive trade... Each year, thousands of horses -- abandoned pets, ex-racehorses, farm animals -- are rounded up and trucked across the country south into Mexico, or north into Canada, for killing and processing and dispatching abroad, many to Europe, a major hub of horsemeat consumption.
It's a murky and often-informal business, with numerous buyers, sellers and middlemen in on the game. And it's part of a much bigger, international trade in horses and horsemeat now in the spotlight in the wake of the European horsemeat scandal... .http://www.alternet.org/environment/brutal-and-secretive-trade-american-horses-killed-their-meat?page=0%2C2&akid=10193.237541.ORdrD5&rd=1&src=newsletter810408&t=5&paging=off
