Everyone who eats meat is a contributor to this cruelty. All animals in the food chain are treated this way and a cow,pig,sheep, turkey chicken feels no less terror than a horse when they know that they are being pushed and battered on their way to their death. Anyone who would not change places with one of these animals has no business eating them. Humane and slaughter do not belong in the same sentence. All slaughter houses lead to the same result - a plate full of terror. These videos should be played above the meat dept in supermarkets, in butcher shops and should preface every advertisement for meat on TV - to remind everyone about what animals endure for the human addiction to flesh-eating.

Only sacked them? They should be punished heavily to fit the crime. This is the problem with the Authorities.
They simply give a punishment something like a slap on a wrist. That is not good enough. Those people who are viciously abuse such beautiful, gentle animals because they are psychotic & mentally deranged. If they can look at in the eyes of such sweet Hoeses & brutally inflict them then that so called humans are not really the humans. They are Evils in disguise. BAN THEM for life time OWNING ANY ANIMALS.
Don't allow the Brutality win. Make sure to give good examples to the Younger generations hence punish these two evils accordingly. Also publish their names for others to know these are two Barbarians.
