Champion show horse slaughtered and butchered on Florida farm

Manatee County detectives said they were searching for the person or people who slaughtered and butchered a 12-year-old prize show jumping horse on a farm in Palmetto.

The Bradenton Herald reports that the 1,300lbs animal was led from his stall at Imperial Farms by someone between 8.30pm on Saturday and 6.45am on Sunday, and then taken to a pen in the back of the 27-acre farm, where he was killed and expertly butchered.

The horse’s name was Phedras de Blondel.

Investigators said they believed the perpetrator was someone who wanted horse meat, knew the farm had horses and took Phedras because he was a big, heavy horse.

Officials said that when the horse was found in the back pen, his legs were gone, with essentially just his head and neck intact.
