The shocking footage, to be shown on Sky News today, comes just days after it emerged horse meat had been found in beefburgers being sold across the UK.

These are just the ones that got caught. This entire practice is viciously cruel and barbaric. Anybody involved in it should be taken out and shot, and that would really be too merciful.

I am sure that this is routine behaviour in all slaughterhouses.

Oh my God, I can't contain myself any longer - people need to go in and beat these pieces of low life shit to a pulp - let them feel the pain and terror that these poor horses felt - and they can't even speak. God, I am so bloody angry if I could get hold of these monsters they would not be on earth any longer.

Shocking! Bad enough these poor horses are being slaugtered for horsemeat,but to torture them as well?
How can anyone be so inhumane and unfeeling?
@ Penny-why should these horses be killed out all, humanely or not? They should be allowed to live the rest of their lives on a farm or in an open field somewhere in peace.

Horrendous. I remember once seeing footage of a horse being led into the slaughterhouse. The look in his eyes has haunted me ever since. I agree with Lesline and Linda. I hope that there are hidden cameras in all slaughterhouses now so that those working there can be monitored. As LMj Sunshine says, "Rest in peace, babies." I hope you somehow know now that there are people who care... So sorry we weren't tehre for you sooner....

What has given man the right to disrespect,hate,punish and just outright be so damn barberic to our innocent and gracefull horses. No horse should ever be killed,much less brutalized and worse for meat. These are very large animals and they are extremely difficult to calm down in order to murder. This is an epedemic. Bloody hell if these pathetic fleas are intent on killing these wonderfull horses,PLEASE shoot them instead. Stop this suffering.

My heart hurts for these poor animals. I'm not a violent person, but when I read these stories, I just want to give the sadistic humans a taste of their own medicine! They not only need to be sacked, they should be executed!

Being sacked from their jobs is not enough for these cruel beings They can just go to another job in another part of the country and do it again Its time they started enforcing stricter laws and punishments for these people
beat them with metal rods and then do away with them They are a total waste of space and no use to anyone
with their sadistic natures The poor animals I feel for them

I agree with Leslene. This is heartbreaking. I am almost in tears because the horses suffer at the hands of these monsters. I wish the slaughterhouse employees, proslaughter people, horsemeat eaters would face the same fate as these poor horse victims. Everyone out there please stop eating meat. Please watch the video Meet Your Meat, it does not show any horses but other animal victims.
