At Our Visitors Request; More About USA Horse Slaughter Investigations by ‘Animals Angels’, Including Links To Europe, Where All Their Investigation Work Started Many Years Ago.

Hi all;

We are hopefully following up on many comments left on this site regarding horse slaughter in the USA.

Obviously we try to help our visitors when we can; so below you will find more up to date news, information and links on the subject of USA horse investigations; as well as links to the European section of Angels which was the initial source of undercover investigations regarding long distance animal transport issues – the area for which EU Angels have always been best known for.

USA Horses:

Every year, approximately 180.000 American horses are slaughtered for human consumption. They are transported across the border to large slaughter facilities in Mexico and Canada and their meat is exported to Italy, Belgium, France and Japan.

Below are some additional links which we hope will provide you with more up to date information on this subject.

Animals Angels was founded and did all of its initial animal transport investigation work in mainland Europe.  It is very well known in Europe for all of its specialist undercover farm animal transport investigations.

Time Out.






It’s a grim sight: twisted cages, starving lions, the bodies of dead monkeys.





SAV Comment:  And they say that humans are the intelligent ones ! – Israeli air strikes have got a lot to answer for.


It’s a grim sight: twisted cages, starving lions, the bodies of dead monkeys.


The Al-Bisan recreational park in Jabalya, northern Gaza was caught in the recent crossfire between Israeli and Palestinian forces. It had a cafeteria, a soccer field, and carousels, most of which have been crushed by air strikes.

Yet the zoo and its beastly residents remain—at least some of them and likely not for long.


The park’s chief veterinarian, Abu Sameer, told CNN that eight to 10 monkeys, a lion, a fox, and a gazelle were killed. Survivors include crocodiles, birds, monkeys, and lions. Many of them appear traumatized and haven’t eaten for 10 to 15 days.

According to Sameer, the three lions face the biggest challenge because the zoo can’t afford to buy meat to feed them.


“We can’t get the animals out to clean the cages,” he said. “Many of them are getting sick because they are weak and it is dirty. But we don’t have any alternative places.”

The Hamas government built the zoo in 2008 to give locals a respite from the difficulties of living on the Gaza Strip. With 67 Israeli and 1,960 Palestinians killed in the current month-long conflict, Al-Bisan’s zoo animals only add to the casualties of war.

“You can see the cages for the animals are badly damaged,” zookeeper Farid al-Hissi told the AFP. “When you see it, it makes you sad because they are in a jail now.”
