I don't think his actions are motivated by any malice towards the horse.
I percieve the "# you" was towards HUMANS he is mad at, not the horse.
If he had to put the horse down for other reasons already, then he could have just said, "Since I have to do this, I might as well make a statement at
the same time and film it to show those PETA #ers what they are forcing me to do!"
-Because there is another side to the business of slaughtering plants-
Many people don't exactly enjoy
doign euthanasia themselves on animals they have emotional bonds with.
If it has to be done, many would prefer it be done out of their sight, by someone else, and with the confidence that the methods are rigorously
controlled to be humane.
Everyone reacts differently to their emotional distress- some people would cry uncontrollably at having to shoot their horse, others tend to get
You know the type, instead of crying, they go looking for some ass to kick instead?
The fact that the man expresses anger towards a group of people while he does this is not proof that he would not have killed that horse if he didn't
have those sentiments.
(I noticed the way he turned and looked off to the side when he took out his gun- that was the body language of someone about to do something that
they hate doing)
Your comment about the vet is irrelevant, as far as I can see. I had to put a horse down and chose to have it done by a vet. It was not as quick and
painless as that bullet was, and I had to be there and watch and hold my Blue as he died. He was young too. I don't believe he gave a flying # what
the vet said- he didn't speak human language. What was relevant to him is how quickly and painlessly his death could have been.
I would not make the same choice today if I had to put down my current horse partner.
