The Animals’ Angels inspectors return to the Sugarcreek Horse Auction. Just as during our last visit, 90% of the horses present are sold to kill buyers and the handling is unbearably rough. The horses rush through the alleys and pens in panic. Our inspectors observe one horse stumbling and falling down, the other horses trample over it in terror. Luckily, the horse manages to get up again. However, it is limping now. The horse is moved with many others into the “kill pen” where it awaits loading onto the buyer’s trailer. One can only imagine what the effects of a long distance transport in that condition will be.
