tartare, yum.It's cows more so than horses but anything known to do that that weighs 600-1000 pounds....yeah. Don't sneak up on em from behind.
It's instinctive for them. It's how they defend against predators who often take down ass first.
I actually saw a pack of wolves drive a deer out onto a frozen lake and take it down from the rear. On ice deer can not throw kicks like that horse did.
Wolves like to tear out the asshole and go for the guts.
Brutal. Often the animal is very much alive while being eaten.
