Illegal Horse Meat in South Florida Worries Stable Owners

17 butchered horse carcasses have turned up in Miami-Dade county alone, a record for the year and the highest number ever recorded for the county. The illicit meat is making a rise in appearance at restaurants across the area. Customers of the meat are dealing with restaurants in a “speakeasy” fashion in procuring the meat. Horse meat is not illegal in and of itself. Selling horse meat is a legal proposition as long as the meat is “stamped, marked and described as horse meat for human consumption.” The problem is most of the meat turning up in investigations across South Florida have not been. Two men were arrested last month by Miami Police and charged with animal cruelty and burglary in the connection with two horses killed.
