Miami – Below, please find a statement from PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien:
Like all animals, these horses deserve better than to be taken from their homes—and no animal should be slaughtered and chopped up for human consumption. PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to their safe return as well as the arrest and conviction of whoever abducted them.
Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Agricultural Patrol Section at 786-218-8344.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way,” and more information about PETA’s work to help animals is available at PETA.org.
