After holding their silence, some of those residents have decided to speak up — demanding the owner pack up his operation and leave town. But the owner insist he’s not in the horse-slaughtering business.  He says he’s just trying to give rescued horses a second chance. Kelly Hayes reports (Warning: Some images might be disturbing)

    From another forum, “a few years ago a truck broke down on the way to the meat plant. He is the same guy.”

      His name is on the list of known horse kill buyers. Abolishhorseslaughtercanada has a list of all known kill buyers in Canada and the U.S. All local auctions have kill buyers available but they keep a low profile. They usually just use a number instead of their names.

    Looks like a killer buyer to me. Saw the double deck trailer in background used to send horses to slaughter…hey he admits he sends horses to slaughter. Horrible human being! Tears for all horses in his feedlot.

    If he says he doesn’t buy horses for slaughter then why is a large horse slaughter truck on his property?!
