An employee of a southeastern New Mexico slaughterhouse has posted a video online showing him fatally shooting a horse in the head.

That has sparked outrage among animal activists and led to death-threat calls to the Roswell meat company, which is working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to get a horse slaughter plant in the area.

A maintenance contractor with Valley Meat Co. is shown in the video bringing a horse out of its pen, swearing at activists and then killing the horse with a single gunshot, KOB-TV reported Thursday.

Rick De Los Santos, a part-owner of Valley Meat Co., said he has been slammed with hate calls and death threats since the video hit the Internet.
"I didn't have anything to do with that video. That's the honest truth," De Los Santos said.

De Los Santos said the contract worker, Tim Sappington, shot the video on his own time and at his own home.

 "He shot a horse. That's what he eats. It's not against the law to slaughter your own horse," De Los Santos said. "Now, putting it on YouTube, I would not have done that."
 Last year, De Los Santos sued the USDA to resume the inspections necessary to open what would be the nation's first new horse slaughterhouse in more than five years.

Wasn't even aware it was legal in the United States. Mixed feelings on a horse slaughter house.. though ultimately I guess if the animal is used for food it's not a whole lot different than slaughtering a cow or a pig, IMO.

NPR had a piece recently on horse meat in other countries.  In some ares, it's considered a delicacy and takes front and center in the butcher's shop over beef and poultry.  I'm not saying I would ever do it (I grew up on a horse farm, so I doubt I could ever do such a thing just because they're more like pets to me.), but it's not something frowned upon outside our country.

I don't see a big deal in eating horse (not watching the video, thanks).  But it should be labeled as horse...

I watched the video, and while my opinion is still the same, the guy who shot the horse seems like he got a kick out of doing it. The way he brought the horse out and even petted it before killing it, really makes me think there's something wrong with him.
