“You’re Going to Fucking Die Here, You Fucking Maggots” – Slaughter, Exposed

An explosive slaughter expose, the most powerful I have ever seen, from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and our friends at The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses in Australia. Two points: Yes, it is graphic (but please don’t let that dissuade you; this needs to be watched and disseminated widely). And let’s be crystal clear here, the exact same thing is happening to our racehorses.

Beyond the grisly killing is the abuse beforehand – both physical and verbal:

“Come on you dumb fucking horses.”

“You’re going to fucking die here, you fucking maggots.”

“You’re dead. You’re dead, dickhead.”

“Fucking dumb cunt.”

“Fucking stupid cunt.”

      • Athletes in sports get hurt, horses in sports will get hurt, it’s reasonably seen that some can not live through certain Injuries, I change the subject because you attack something small, the world is ugly, filled with many more problems with animals being harmed or killed, you attack horse racing and want wipe out the breed. Which will never happen, There’s bigger fish. And some of the false info you put to further your agenda is being reported as it goes

      • I’m don’t know why I’m still astounded by the lack of critical reasoning skills among the general population.

      • The info posted here by Mr. Batuello is as accurate as can be. And our HRW is totally commited to the truth re horse racing

      • Joe ,Congrats on showing your stupidity. These athletes (horses) never chose to be bred to endure abuse. Tell me one sport where an athlete will slow down and then be slaughtered for it. Or a sport where an athlete sits in a tiny room for 23 hours, nah no anxiety will result. Ah, how about continuously being drugged to perform and yield a profit even when your hurting. Every sport allows an athlete to step away for a full recovery. People like you say fuck it, it’s a horse. Or Joe how about if you’re laying on the ground in pain before a needle gets injected into you. You lived a dreadful 2 to 5 years. Thank You Joe for confirming there are true jags in this country.

      • Then why aren’t you on PETA’s site blackballing them? Why do racing apologists come here pretending to give a shit about animals by pointing at some other form of abuse and saying that horse racing deaths and injuries are no big deal in view of some larger world picture? Let’s be clear, Joe, HORSE RACING IS ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION. Are other animals being abused? Yes, terribly. And there are other websites you can go to, and you can raise the banner against PETA, who I believe need a thorough investigation themselves. However trying to point at another wrong to justify the one you personally support is no argument. It’s past time you racing apologists and defenders stop hiding behind the label of “sport” and have the balls to admit that you simply enjoy a legal form of animal abuse and are fighting to keep the misery, torture and death alive for personal gratification and entertainment.

      • ANYBODY KILLING ANIMALS NEED SEVERE PUNISHMENT. YOU SEEM UPSET THAT PEOPLE ARE CALLING OUT THIS COWARD. MONSTERS LIKE THESE HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING AROUND ANIMALS. YOU ARE MISINFORMED, I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU GET YOUR FAKE INFORMATION FROM? CAN YOU SHOW PROOF OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING? SHOW PROOF OF THIS SO THAT WE CAN READ IT.;MAKE SURE IT IS FROM A CREDIBLE SOURCE..

      • PETA stirs up a lot of stuff for people who want to keep things secret. PETA vies for animals used in labs, in circuses, as entertainment, etc. Don’t believe liars that want to discredit this organization because they expose the cruelty and suffering of other species. PETA’s enemies have a lot to gain by trying to discredit PETA. They’re going to have to try harder.

      • You’re by far, Joe, a disgruntled moron!! Take your argument with PETA, to PETA. When you can’t keep up with the conversation, leave the room.

        You BET—They DIE
        🚫🐎🚫🐎🚫🐎🚫

      • PETA kills more animals than anyone else? Are you fucking kidding me? Ever hear of factory farming? Billions TORTURED and slaughtered daily so you can stuff your piehole with cholesterol and fat. By the way, a sport is where each participant has equal opportunities to complete and win. These horses don’t get to whip the fuck out of humans as they are already running as fast as they can. And who wins the race? Yes. The horses that are running, NOT the one whipping them to death. Barbarians that enjoy animal cruelty should just go back to masturbating in the bathroom with their old sticky Playboy magazines!!

      • No false information involved, just the true facts that sadistic horse torturers don’t want the public to know about. Secrecy is the abuser’s agenda. Lies also. And who are you reporting this so-called misinformation to? The national masturbation society?

      • Joe where are you??? What? No response to those who have commented? Are you just someone who stirs things up and then steps aside because you truly don’t know what you’re talking about? People like you have no place in the conversation because you are so uninformed. I’d love to see you in a debate with Ingrid Newkirk. BTW she’s the Executive Director of PETA and I bet she’d have one or two things to set you straight about.
        I’m also willing to bet you know nothing about horses…

      • Even though this may be a little off-topic, you are WRONG about PETA — PETA itself admits to the fact that they are NOT a shelter after being presented with EVIDENCE that Animals were killed in the back of their Vans by their own employees — please PAY a visit to — https://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org – in brief, Peta believes that if Animals are all alone without caretakers, they are better off dead — can you believe such logic and rationale? — instead of sending Animals to a Rescue for adoption, PETA murders the dog, the cat, etc. — again, pay a visit to — https://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org headed by Nathan Winograd — the proof is there — Lisa, this is NOT about who argues the best, this is about saving the lives of Animals — PETA is an organization that “seems to” exist for the purpose of protecting Animals — they’re misleading us all.

    • Jockey is ok….she got on hospital ambulance ok. According to tvg doesnt seem to be bad. Horse. Number 10. She didnt fall just jerked around.

      • Nancy I hope she’ll be ok but that front leg looked bad like it was flopping around. Let’s hope she won’t need to be “put down “,but I have my doubts…it didn’t look good.

    • Joe tossed it out there. I know it takes effort to not respond but that will keep the little people of his ilk from reading and smiling while they rub their little hands together. What would he wonder about if he was completely ignored. it is not hate, but indifference, that is the opposite of love.

  1. Australia has something called knackeries that takes the unwanted and is heartbreaking to watch. The creeps say the same thing and have no conscience.

  2. Bonnie i hope so too. At least Julian stopped her quickly. I did not see her leg and hopefully she made it and not another casualty
    Thank you for always responding to my postings. Appreciate you!!!!

  3. Poor well bred filly died today in the 6th race at Keeneland. Matt Hegarty had the decency to report it. Call to Victory will not ever start another race. 3 year old filly by Jimmy Creed out of a Medaglia D’Oro mare had her life in front of her until Brendan Walsh decided to take that chance. These people should not have the right to turn other peoples horses into trash. They have to pay for this with jail time and the cost of the horse. Minimum

  4. I am amazed daily at the postings over the kills at these different race tracks. The lack of respect for these horses is more than I can even start to understand. If any trainer or rider ever referred to one of my horses by the names listed above on this write up on the racing in Australia I would have literally grabbed them the hell off the horse and throat punched them right on the spot. These are ignorant f*ckers and no horse ever needs to be treated with no respect. We need to ban together to stop this racing completely. I am having huge issues as well as many of you with regards to the lack of involvement with Peta or certainly to the point that it matters. We are losing horses daily and they are suffering tremendously for nothing more than some ignorant bastard hoping to have a f*cking “win” ticket – Jesus H Christ people we have to get rid of these horrible abusers and killers because that is all that any of them are. We need to save the lives of these poor horses as this racing is beyond “out of hand.”

  5. The task is to get all of the information collected into many horse lovers’ hands. Thoughts are welcome. Try to keep them integral with horse lovers. I wish us all the best.

  6. The people that own these poor horses & who made thousands or millions of dollars off of them should never be able to own another horse in their entire life. You put a horse out to pasture you don’t put it out to be slaughter. What kind of human are you? Definitely not a humane one, definitely not one with any compassion, definitely a selfish human who only thinks of themselves. If you don’t want the horse give it to somebody who would really love to have a horse in their life or an organization/nonprofit that uses horses to help people. If this is what happens to the horse’s after they make money for the human’s that should care for them then this sport should be shutdown. And yesterday wouldn’t have been soon enough. I consider these so call people serial killers & they should be prosecuted to the fullest of the law. For it’s torture & murder. Those F%$#king men in the video should have been kicked by the horses, electrocuted & scared out of their wits. The so call people who own these racing horses are the ignorant f*uckers and I have no respect for them are the people that put the horses to dead. You can’t tell me these aren’t health horses & they didn’t ask to be killed, they didn’t say oh, yes you have too many of us just go ahead and slaughter me: you ignorant F*UCKER. I don’t care if you don’t agree with me or your feelings are hurt, this is life that GOD put on earth and one day you will have to answer to it. These are beautiful mammals that has been there for man for hundreds of years & I love to watch them in the fields especially when they run they are simply gorgeous. Then some dump fuck like you comes along & destroys the relationship between man & this glorious mammal. So excuse me if I don’t give a flyer frog’s ass what you think.

  7. Who is that dick going on about dogs when we are talking about horses, no abuse should go on anywhere with any animal, or people come to that tho I would like to get my hands on some of these sadistic monsters who do abuse horses, I would happily do time to get my hands on them

  8. A thousand curses on you, bloody horse abusers!!
    ~May Your Significant Other Have An Affair With Count Dracula~

  9. Definitely the most powerful expose on the dark side of horseracing to date. Absolute respect and gratitude to all organisations working tirelessly to explodes the myths and shine the light of exposure into the worldwide heinously inhumane practices within this monumental industry, that functions precariously on a facade of pristine appearance, pretentious glamour and greed. I hope this report helps to rip the roots of tradition further out of the ground in our advance forward to the right side of history and the due diligent respect that horses more than any other species are owed, for their unassailable sacrilege to us throughout history. It is an abomination and a shameful indictment of humankind that we are still prepared in the 21st century to harness such deceit and corruption against animals of such innate servility in the interest of their exploitation for the procurement of our own selfishness.

  10. It’s almost unbelievable that these people would say “well they can’t kill NSW horses because it’s not permitted” and expect the bad guys to play along. It’s stupid and it’s naive. Oh well pass a rule and it’ll be followed. Idiots.

    “Suffering met with whoops of enjoyment.”

    I think what is being missed is the number of psychopaths working here. They should be sent to be tested for mental psychosis and mental stability, and what they do in their off time should be explored.

    Anyone who kills animals on a daily basis and isn’t affected by it, moreso if they enjoy it, are not people who should be in polite society. They should be locked up. They are not sane. Only people with mental deficiencies would be okay with carrying out killing animals in such gruesome ways. I’d love to see them experience it and see how they like it.

    Also Joe is right. Peta *does* kill more animals than it allegedly saves. They have been caught stealing dogs and killing them. Please do not say bringing up PETA and their animal killing is changing the subject. Saying that is an insult to the animals that PETA has killed. You can’t say you’re against horseracing and that you’re for PETA (you haven’t but your reply to Joe insinuates it). PETA is just as bad as horseracing. They are a despicable group of people who say they are doing one thing – protecting animals – when in reality they are killing them and taking thousands of dollars in donations. Sound familiar??? IMHO, it sounds like horseracing (we care for our equine athletes please place $2.00 bets to support them) to me.

    • I completely agree that anyone who enjoys butchering animals has a serious mental issue. I’m not against using animals for food (even animals kill and eat animals) but there should be a standard of humane treatment beforehand and there is none. Without going into all the other venues, the slaughter of horses is particularly disgusting. The men who work at these slaughterhouses display a level of cruelty that is truly terrifying and I have a hard time believing their affinity for torture is relegated to the workplace only.

  11. I know you meant “sacrifice” and I wish we had editing capability here. I was riding through Death Valley when it became abundantly clear that we owe horses a ton. We used them as a tool to develop the West and a good tool they were. As with the domestication of dogs, we have a sizable debt. I find it interesting that, instead of repayment, we continue to amass the debt. And this has become algebraic in it’s increase because, as one example, we use them for fatal entertainment.

  12. These masturbating pieces of shit don’t deserve to be around these magnificent horses. Ignorant, impotent penile implants don’t deserve to live let alone be around animals of any kind. Hopefully, these animal torturers will die violent deaths. Let the horses trample them into the piles of shit that they are!

  13. Horse slaughter is beyond anything you can possibly imagine. It causes terror, pain, and great suffering. Watching these slaughter videos can literally make you sick. I just want everyone to know why we MUST shut down horseracing NOW. They can’t be allowed to suffer anymore!

    Humane Society of the United States investigation reports horses in MX and CAN slaughterhouses are stabbed in the neck several times with a “puntilla knife” to sever their spinal cords, which paralyzes them, their legs are shackled together, and then they are hoisted, bled out, and cut apart… while still conscious and able to feel everything.

    Video of a slaughterhouse (there are so many I don’t remember where this particular one was) where horses are crammed in small enclosures waiting to be killed. They are terrified and panicked. A big greasy bloody man standing about 20-30 feet away shoots them in the head with a rifle and they recoil, stunned. They keep moving around frantically trying to get away but he keeps shooting them in the head. Finally they go down. Unable to get up, they are dragged about 50 feet by a chain across the bloody concrete slaughterhouse floor. Their jugular veins are then sliced and then they are strung up, hanging from the rafters by one hind foot, and sliced vertically the length of their bodies. They bleed out and are cut apart, while still conscious. SO Vile.

    Not every horse can be a big money winner, in fact most are not and are sent to slaughterhouses to be killed. Everyone is trying to figure out why so many horses are dying and suffering from catastrophic injuries that cause their career ending demise and eventually have to go to horrible slaughterhouses. These are some things I’ve tried to research to help with understanding as to why horseracing can NEVER get better and needs to be SHUT DOWN now:

    Track surfaces vary from turf, dirt, and synthetic, some are cross-channeled and sloped for drainage, a very uneven/unstable running surface. Racehorses are constantly being moved from track to track which are all slightly different, and they become sore. A thousand-pound horse racing at 40 mph needs about a 3-4 inch hoof slide so it doesn’t come to an abrupt halt with each step. The hoof strikes the ground about 150 times per minute at the speed they race, more than two times per second, times how many minutes in the race, times how many races per day/week/month/year. Synthetic surfaces are not conducive to permitting hoof slide. Racehorses wear aluminum shoes with cleat-like toe grabs which also are not designed to allow hoof slide. All of this, as does racing in general, puts tremendous stress and cumulative wear and tear on horses’ legs and hooves leading to breakdowns.

    Racehorses begin hard training at 18 months of age; they are still babies similar to a toddler. Their bones and joints are not developed or closed at that tender age, and yet they are beaten/whipped into submission to go faster and faster, to perform at the super athletic level of a SuperBowl. The whips are like fishing poles and are weighted. Pictures are available of the damage these repetitive aggressive overhead beatings do to the horse under the skin. The excessive concussive pounding to the legs causes numerous bone and soft tissue injuries which naturally results in a myriad of injuries including legs/hooves being snapped off and dangling. These, added to the other usual injuries of broken necks, severed spines, pelvic fractures, cardiovascular collapse, hemorrhaging… We need to SHUT HORSERACING DOWN and stop the never-ending suffering of these beautiful, sensitive, and majestic horses. I can’t even imagine what it’s like for a horse that has been racing for several years, giving all it had every time, and beaten/ground down its whole life, up to 73 times under the whip!!!! Death would be a welcome peace for those souls.

    Racing heartbeat is 230 beats per minute (before all the drugs are administered); the heart does not have enough time to recover before the next heartbeat, so horse can collapse. The drugs are either injected into the jugular or the joints or tubed into the stomach. Some drugs of choice used to mask pain or enhance performance are: scopolamine, methocarbamol, phenylbutazone, adrenalin (they just spin around in their stalls wild and crazy-eyed), lasix (a diuretic causing dehydration and loss of electrolytes [feed and water are withheld on race day], Viagra, cocaine, pesticides (horses don’t eat jimson weed), rat poison, frog venom (reportedly 40 times more potent than morphine), cobra venom, elephant juice, all with side effects, and who knows what other “designer drugs” they use on these poor innocent victims.

    The Breeders’ Cup is in two weeks, Nov 1st and 2nd, the BIG one = $$$, which racehorse people have been training for all year. I wish people would stop betting and see that they are the only ones supporting this vile industry and without them horseracing could not stand on its own, it’s so heavily subsidized and corrupt from within, and the carnage would finally have to stop. I’m praying for all the innocent, sweet, beautiful horses this day and every day who give their all to try to please their owners/trainers/jockeys or run as fast as they can to escape the fear, pain, and torture inflicted on them every second of every day of their lives.

    There is a vigil at Santa Anita this Thursday morning. I’m trying to get permission from MyNewsLA.com from October 20th to give the details so people from everywhere can honor all the horses — past, present, and future. Bring flowers, ribbons, windproof candles…

    Sorry this is so long. I had to get it out. I can’t sleep for thinking about everything and seeing the daily racing injuries and the horrific slaughter videos.

    • No need to apologize, Sandy…thank you…we understand and we will continue to be a united voice for the horses who suffer in silence.

      Thank you.

  14. Every day, another EVIL against innocent, vulnerable Horses — Something’s gotta give — it MUST STOP — I will seek out that Bill mentioned earlier by former NYS Trooper — —- “to end the transport of Horses to slaughter. It is bill # S5983 which was introduced by Senator Martinez. We still need an Assembly sponsor. It’s not enough to feel bad. Each NYS resident who loves horses should contact their legislators and ask for passage of this bill” — I wish I had magic powers to swoop in & out of these situations rescuing the Horses — the PSYCHO-Humans must be STOPPED and thrown in prison.

  15. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2019/s5983

    Horses must be protected from harm under animal cruelty protection laws. Horses must be free from the threat of the heinous commercial horse slaughter industry. The criminal-thugs who participate in the business of slaughter MUST BE STOPPED. We MUST NOT let the monsters get away with their tortuous, abhorrent abuse of our Horses. Our Horses have done nothing wrong, their ancestors helped build our country and they should be treated humanely with dignity and respect.

    We MUST PROTECT our horses from the horrific fate of slaughter, whether here or beyond our borders. Horses, frequently injured, SUFFER long journeys without adequate food, water or rest, to slaughter plants across the border, where they meet a brutally sadistic & terrifying end. We are their Stewards. We MUST prevent the establishment of horse slaughter operations within the U.S. MOREOVER, we MUST END the current export of American Horses for slaughter abroad.

    In addition, 80% of Americans oppose horse slaughter. Again, we MUST NOT let the Monster-Thugs get away with their heinous crimes against our Horses.

    THE HISTORY of MANKIND IS CARRIED on the BACK OF the HORSE — ALL HORSES DESERVE to be RESPECTED and PROTECTED — NO MATTER WHAT.

  16. HORSERACING THROUGHOUT THE WORLD NEEDS TO END!!! SPREAD THIS INFORMATION FAR AND WIDE TO HELP THESE BEAUTIFUL INNOCENT HORSES!

  17. Stop trying to PLAY GOD PATRICK… I love my animals and you are just pathetic..The Lord put animals on the earth for a reason.. you are not the one who decides that .. sorry …

    • Yvonne – what a totally bizarre post to put under a horrific expose on slaughtering horses. You are a strange one for sure.

    • You speak what you do yet claim love for your animals, boy oh boy if ignorance is bliss you might be the most blissful thing ive ever come across. Wont call you human you dont derserve that respect.

    • So let me understand you, Yvonne. First, you love your animals – but from your comments you don’t seem to give a shit about any others. Second, you say that Patrick can’t play God and decide what happens to these racehorses – all he’s doing is exposing the cruelty and abuse that happen on a daily basis, which any normal person would be horrified to hear about. However, following your rickety train of logic, since you obviously support horse racing, it’s okay for the racing industry to decide that these horses should be forced into training too young, or shot full of drugs to mask their injuries and sent out to race so they suffer catastrophic injuries, or traded off multiple times in a single week, or sent to slaughter? I’m trying to see things from your point of view but I can’t get my head that far up my own ass.

      • Very well said and I thank you for caring enough to speak for the voiceless horses that are exploited, drugged, whipped, and raced to death in this cruel INDUSTRY,

    • Let these little people go and put that energy into a better cause. There are a gazzilion of ’em and they aren’t worth even a few keystrokes, let alone the bad shit that they rile up. Breathe.

  18. This industrialized slaughter is an abomination, a cancer on the soul of humanity. The sick individuals who enjoy an outlet for their sick minds in this brutal occupation need help badly instead of employment in this obscene slaughter business,
    And the pro slaughter people had he nerve to promote slaughter as euthanasia!!! How insulting is that to people’s intelligence, compassion and sense of right and wrong,
    Every person who supports racing in any capacity also supports the abomination of slaughter. It is that simple.

  19. On the topic of slaughter, it is important to note, once again, that the organization “We Support Horse Racing” encourages the thoughts and ideas of Protect the Harvest – an organization that promotes horse slaughter. Additionally, WSHR reveals that “rodeo cowboys” are included in the “Who We Are” of their organization. Given that rodeo activities deliberately inflict pain and violence on animals, it speaks volumes that the racing folks support it.

    • AND PROTECT THE HARVEST has filed a lawsuit to overturn the vote to end greyhound racing in Fl. on the grounds it is unconstitutional ! Overturning the will of the people is far closer to unconstitutional !!!
      These people cite the constitution when they think it is to their advantage and ignore it if it does not seem it would support their agenda.

      • Also, since “rodeo cowboys” are included in the “Who We Are” of WSHR it follows they support the Suicide Race of the annual Omak Stampede. Horses are raced down a 62 degree embankment and as many as 4 horses were killed in one race. You can see the terror in the eyes of the horses.
        Further, the racing business must be quite pleased with the support of the group. Wonder if group “members” ever think they could be exploited by the corrupt business. Some of the “members” don’t seem to be very knowledgeable or understand the gambling business is far more than the pageantry, the post parades and the big winners.

  20. I sent this to about 20 different media outlets. If a story like this were done by 60 Minutes about kill pens in North America, the cause of this site would move forward quickly.

  21. This is old news, but I post it here for you to have names of people that support our endeavor. Both sides of the aisle are here. Go to the link at the bottom of this page for more.

    Their bill, the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act, would also outlaw the export of live horses to Mexican and Canadian slaughterhouses.

    The bill was also introduced in the Senate by Sens. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.; Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.; and Susan Collins, R-Maine.

    Banning horse slaughter has become an annual fight, prompting Buchanan, caucus co-chairman Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., and more than 200 bipartisan co-sponsors in the House to introduce a bill to permanently bar the practice.

    An annual fight. Wow.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/03/26/ban-slaughtering-horses-meat-gets-last-minute-renewal-spending-law-trump-signed/459076002/

  22. Like Silence of the Lambs. It brings to mind what many said during the holocaust: “If there is a God, well then where is He?” The treatment of those animals by those folks in that film is just sickening and appalling. Studies have borne out the direct links between child abusers, wife beaters and animal abusers.

    And they dare try to argue (here in the good ol’ USA) that they take jobs that most Americans won’t take. Well, good for most Americans. A job like that they can take it and shove it.

    Can they ever quantify all of the bankruptcies, suicides, homicides and other miscellaneous deviant outcomes that have resulted from this morbid form of greed and entertainment?
