Animals’ Angels investigators visited the Euclid Auction finding approximately 180 horses for sale. The majority of the animals were held in exterior pens with access to water, however inspectors noted that all water containers were covered with a thick film of algae. Only a few animals held in pens directly adjacent to the auction building had access to shelter from the heat. David Misner, a suspected “slaughter horse” buyer was in attendance and purchasing unsold horses under the acronym DM.v126_img_d9797_140_thumb While the horse auction was attended by the public, by 5.00pm many people had left and approximately the last 34 horses were purchased by DM. Animals’ Angels will continue to monitor this auction.
