Every week dedicated equine advocates attend the well-known Ontario Livestock Exchange auction, also known as OLEX, in Kitchener, Ontario.
OLEX is a prime auction for kill buyers who buy horses for the two Quebec slaughterhouses.
One of the groups who attend is Justice Love’n Care Animal-Rescue. They have kept meticulous stats of the numbers of horses sold each Tuesday and the number who go to kill buyers. We have taken their numbers and compiled them into a spreadsheet showing the various breeds passing through OLEX on their life journey.
The stats can be seen here and we’ll update it every so often.
