The Animals’ Angels investigators follow a truck loaded with horses from the U.S. to the slaughter plant in Juarez.

Unlike the slaughter plants located in Jerez and Fresnillo, this plant is not approved by the European Union and horses are brutally killed by using a Puntilla knife. The horses are stabbed in the neck, which only paralyzes the animal.


The investigators observed the horses being unloaded into the plant. Many were extremely emaciated. Animals’ Angels will continue to observe activities and ensure that no more American horses are sent to slaughter in Mexico.
