USPCA: 90% of horses channelled through NI end up as meat..

Valerie Cox just now interviewed a spokesman for the USPCA on Pat Kenny’s show on RTE… He talked an operation which horses were found to be being channelled from the Republic through Northern Ireland and into Scotland.

With them horse passports and false microchips. The cheaters kit for passing off common or garden horse as fit for the food chain.

Intriguingly the horsemeat seems then to being sent to central Europe.
