Brena Kramer showed FOX 13 News a few of the injuries sustained by her horses, including cuts near their eyes and rope burns near their mouths. She says she found one horse with a rope still tied around its neck.

Kramer says she’s not surprised, but she wants to warn other horse owners in the area.

“It is common down south, it’s something most horse owners know about, especially in Florida,” Kramer said. “They will bleed them out and start butchering while the horse is bleeding.”

Recent horse slaughter cases in Manatee, Marion, and Sumter counties have left owners on edge.

Kramer believes her two rottweilers scared away whoever may have been on her property.

Deputies in Pasco County called it a suspicious incident and said they’re looking into it.

Horse owners are being asked to stay vigilant and report any unusual activity.

  1. Of note: in the video there is a note on the blackboard about a horse getting Banamine, looks like three times a day. Not recommended in human diets, but whoever is selling or eating Florida’s horses either doesn’t know or doesn’t care.
