Westwold Canada horse slaughter plantAn employee of KML Processors tells Global that they have slaughtered between 70 and 80 horses since they opened the plant on August 19th.

The horses come from two feed lots in Manitoba and are large, draft horses.

The processed meat is sent exclusively to Japan for sale.

The plant currently only has a license to slaughter horses, but hopes to obtain a license to process cattle as well.

KML is one of only several licensed horse slaughter plants in Canada.

The protest is taking place this Saturday, with participants gathering at the Westwold Elementary School
