In September 2007, the British organization Animal Aid took undercover footage of horse slaughter in an abattoir in Taunton, England. These videos, photographs, and the text are courtesy of Animal Aid.

 Read the Animal Aid notes about their undercover filming for this exposť

 

About 20 of the roughly 50 horses Animal Aid filmed over just two days and one evening were Thoroughbreds [horses bred for racing]. [Note: Defra, the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, says the Taunton operation, together with another in Cheshire, kills 6,000-10,000 horses a year for consumption abroad.]

"It is estimated that approximately 18 000 Australian ex-racehorses are sent to their slaughter each year."

 

Culling and killing are inevitable in the horseracing industry.
This should not be part of Israel's future.
