Slaughtered horses found in south Florida

July 29th, 2009 by

MIAMI – Another horse has been found dead in south Florida.

More than a dozen horse killings have been reported, apparently at the hands of people butchering the animals for their meat.

The latest horse was found Sunday morning. A police report says its owner found the animal cut up and burned.

Earlier this month, a dead horse was found along a rural Miami road on the edge of the Everglades. Miami-Dade police say the horse had been mutilated.

Two horses were found slaughtered in a similar way in nearby Miramar several months ago.

Authorities there also believe the horses were butchered for their meat. Officials believe the meat is being sold on the black market since the sale of horse meat is illegal in the U.S.

No arrests have been made.
