A teenager was arrested by the Hialeah and Miami-Dade police when he was taken with incriminating evidence and confessed to having butchered a horse in company with another man. The details of his act, for which he was paid $300 by someone as yet unknown, are so gruesome that I can’t bring myself to put them into this entry. You can read more at the September 17 posting of The Miami Herald: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/miami-dade/story/1237437.html.
Sadly, a September 10 posting at the same newspaper site tells us that a racehorse has been slaughtered. The police are investigating thoroughly to see if these two crimes are related and of course to find out who else is involved.
