Militant vegans launch protest against a challenging butcher who protesters & # 39; maggots & # 39; and refused to stop selling horse meat
- Direct Action Everywhere members will descend into the butcher's shop of Vince Garreffa
- The protest takes place on Saturday at Mondo Butchers in Inglewood in Perth
- Mr. Garreffa said that the & # 39; maggots & # 39; do not phase it and horse meat will continue to sell
Militant vegans are planning to protest outside the store of a butcher who refuses to stop selling horse meat.
Members of Animal Rights Group Direct Action Everywhere will demonstrate this Saturday outside Mr Garreffa's Mondo Butchers in Inglewood in Perth.
& # 39; Mondo Butchers sells the bodies of murdered victims, but the owner Vince preaches respect and courtesy to other creatures & # 39 ;, said the group on Facebook.
& # 39; In his hypocrisy, his actions toward the innocent are common. & # 39;
They said that despite the ABC report on race horses that are on an & # 39; industrial scale & # 39; being slaughtered, Mr Mondo & # 39; still decides to promote the requirement for the slaughter of innocent horses and other animals & # 39 ;.

Butcher Vince Garreffa (center) has been selling horse meat since 2010 and named the vegan militant demonstrators & # 39; maggots & # 39;
But owner of Mondo Butcher Vince Garreffa said he was not phased by the proposed protest and that the police and his lawyer are being informed
& # 39; It is about time normalized violence, especially of this nature being recognized and disputed.
& # 39; Come to us to force society from the dark ages and eradicate the companies that have evolved this mentality. & # 39;
But the butcher said the police and his lawyer will be notified before the militant vegans meet in his shop this weekend.
& # 39; By doing this … the support of the community is being lifted for us. They are only maggots. We will see what happens, & he told the West Australian.
Direct action Group leader James Warden and Mr Garreffa fell victim to the Flashpoint current affairs program in October.
During the debate, Mr. Garreffa accused Mr. Warden and other vegan militants as & # 39; malicious & # 39; for violating the characteristics of farmers.
& # 39; Those poor families you've chosen hurt more than ever if you've won a small victory, & # 39; he said in the Channel 7 program.
The well-known butcher has been selling horse meat for human consumption for almost ten years.
& # 39; It (horse meat) is available all over the world, in 20 different countries. We are butchers, we have what was once legally available to the public.
& # 39; People are very proud of my store. & # 39;
Saturday's proposed protest will not be the first time that vegan militants storm a butcher in Perth.
Last month demonstrators stood in front of Tenderwest Meats in the Belmont Forum in Perth and shouted past customers with a megaphone.
& # 39; They never wanted to die for you, & # 39; the group leader shouted as his followers raised the animals in slaughterhouses.
The racing industry has already come under fire in recent weeks after a two-year investigation by the ABC & # 39; s 7.30 found that retired thoroughbreds are being killed for meat for human consumption
Last month, ABC's explosive two-year investigation revealed that an alarming number of retired thoroughbreds are being killed for meat for human consumption.
The official data from Racing Australia claim that around 34 race horses end up in slaughterhouses each year, a figure that makes up less than one percent of the horses leaving.
But Elio Celotto from the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses told the ABC that around 4,000 racehorses had been killed in one slaughterhouse alone.
That slaughterhouse – located in southeastern Queensland – was the focus of the broadcaster's investigation and infiltrated with hidden cameras.
The cameras showed that in just 22 days, more than 300 racehorses, who together won $ 5 million in prize money, were killed.
