“There is one place, closer to home, where the adventurous can find equine steak. In South Florida (really, where else?), only 20 minutes from South Beach, festers a hotbed of open-air abattoirs. Butchers make good money: Horse meat can start at $7 a pound from a tired nag and increase to five times that from a racehorse, whose flesh some believe can cure impotence. They may source their meat from Craigslist, buying horses for a few hundred dollars or by falsely promising to give rescues a good home. When all else fails, the horse butchers become horse thieves.” And then there’s the guy who’s trying to stop them. David Gauvey Herbert in Bloomberg: The Horse Meat Vigilante.
