“Mare was compromised and had gone through avoidable pain during transport.”

Access to Information documents reveal yet another unforgiveable atrocity: the grueling story of an emaciated 20-year-old draft type mare who was forced to travel for over three hours from breeding farm to slaughterhouse.

Two other older mares traveled in the same trailer – more victims of this cruel industry that breeds horses for live export and slaughter in Japan.
