A 24 year old cart racer in Sweden, Helena Ståhl, is facing worldwide criticism after she ate her injured horse, Iffy Mant. Ståhl’s horse severely injured himself last month and the attending veterinarian told her that he would have to put down. There are no details on how the horse was put to sleep, but afterwards Ståhl invited a group of friends over to gorge on his meat. “Many of my friends claim it’s the most delicious meat they have ever eaten,” Ståhl said. She went on to explain how it she cooked Iffy Mant as horse steaks, horse mince and a horse roast.
“For me there were no alternatives since I think the meat industry is going in the wrong direction, and to eat an animal that had a good life felt right for me,” Ståhl told reporters. “I told my mother that if I could not eat meat from an animal that had a good life, I will never eat meat again. To eat meat from an animal that might never even get to see the sun, nobody thinks is odd. But to eat an animal that you, yourself, have taken care of is suddenly the oddest thing anybody has heard. I think that is scary.”
Ståhl continues to compete in harness racing and also works as a groomer and stable hand, and seems to be brushing off the criticism she is receiving world wide.
