CNN reports on string of horse killings

CNN has a report on the killing of horses that is occurring in South Florida. The article references the butchering of 19 horses, including a sad case of a horse named Geronimo. The article also notes that this number may be undereported because some victims may not want to involve law enforcement. According to the article, there is a black market for horse meat in South Florida. An officer with the SPCA notes that there are several factors driving the market, the most bizarre being that "people may be interested in horse meat because of a false belief that it will cure medical ailments such as AIDS or ease the side effects of chemotherapy."
