Horses Suffer Horrific Highway Crash on Way to Kill Barn
On March 1, 2017, a truck packed with 36 horses and a donkey ran off the road on Highway 82, near Greenville, Mississippi. Eleven horses were killed and seven were shot as a result of their horrific injuries. Fourteen horses and the donkey were rounded up and contained and three others who found freedom and were frolicking in a field were later captured to be transported to the Bastrop "kill barn," a term used for sell barns primarily dealing in horses for slaughter. The driver reported he was in route to the Bastrop, Louisiana from Murray, Kentucky. The horses were bound for the Bastrop sell barn. The Bastrop "kill barn" is owned and operated by brothers, Mitch and Greg Stanley. The sell barn became infamous recently when a video thought to be taken by the Stanley's nephew, Boots Stanley, captured Boots encouraging his buddy, Steven Saddler, in playing a kill game with a gentle dog and ultimately slitting the dog's throat. Their court date is set for July 12, 2017.
