MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Police in a Miami suburb say the butchered remains of a horse have been found on a driveway.
Miami Gardens police say a passer-by reported finding a "dead carcass" Wednesday morning.
SPCA President Jeanette Jordan told The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/14z9S9L ) the horse was slaughtered while still alive.
Photos showed the horse's severed head and other body parts lying on pavement.
The illegal slaughter of horses for meat consumption is common in some parts of Miami-Dade County. Police said they have no leads in the case.
