US Horses Await Slaughter in Mexico


In a two-part investigation by Animal Equality, undercover investigators show American horses at the Cárnicas de Jerez slaughterhouse in Zacatecas, Mexico. The horses are identified as coming from the United States by the yellow USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) tag stuck to their bodies. In the second part, Animal Equality releases new images of what happens inside Mexican slaughterhouses. Tired and injured horses are hung by their necks by chains and forced to move with electric shocks after workers wet them. Animals were also found to be killed while conscious.
