Unwanted horses are being beaten, neglected and savagely slaughtered at a Victorian knackery that kills horses for pet food.
An undercover investigation by Animals Australia member society — the Coalition for Protection of Racehorses — has found these noble animals being disposed of like rubbish and in the most horrendous way imaginable.
The terribly cruel and sad end these horses endure will shock Australians
Nature's Child deserved more than this
There was no happy retirement for race-winning thoroughbred Nature's Child. After a racing career that won tens of thousands of dollars for her owners, her last moments were spent in fear and terror at Laverton Knackery — just a stone's throw from Australia's most famous racetrack. No horse deserves to die this way. Help save other animals from the same fate by taking action today.
