Groundbreaking Animal Equality Investigation: Horse Slaughter in Asturias, Spain

A groundbreaking investigation by Animal Equality and award-winning photojournalist Aitor Garmendia exposes the slaughter of horses in Spain. The findings reveal persistent abuse and inhumane treatment within the industry.

Between November 2023 and May 2024, Animal Equality documented the cruel conditions at a slaughterhouse in Asturias, Spain. Despite a decrease in horse meat consumption, Spain remains the largest producer in the EU. But Spain is not the only country contributing to this trade.

While the US prohibits the sale of horse meat domestically, it still exports thousands of horses for slaughter, contributing significantly to global horse meat production.

No matter where these investigations take place, they reveal a common reality: one where the violence inflicted on these animals robs them of the most precious thing—their lives.

Horses deserve to live a life full of companionship and love, free from suffering. By embracing cruelty-free, plant-based foods, we can show compassion and refrain from contributing to their suffering.
