Broome Towing Company Stuck With Horse Carcasses
John’s Body Shop in Binghamton wants to know what it’s supposed to do with the carcasses of 30 horses that burned to death in a cattle hauler near Lisle May 6th.
The company is waiting for word on who is going to dispose of the remains of the animals that died when a malfunctioning fuel tank sprayed fuel all over the trailer and the petroleum ignited.
John’s Body shop says their crews spent more than seven hours to remove the dead animals from the trailer.
The rig was transporting the horses from Pennsylvania to a rendering plant in Quebec when it caught fire between Lisle and Marathon, just south of the Cortland County Line.
The driver of the truck was not hurt.
