A teen got death threats, When she admitted that she ate her horse after it was put down, saying it was the ‘ best meat she had ever eaten. ‘

The family of Pia Olden kept fillets of her dead stallion, Drifting Speed, in their freezer after it was put down due to illness in 2018. The picture showed some mango and chili topping meat.
Ms Olden is both an apprentice chef and a keen horse owner, and she explained how the dish had been prepared. The picture showed some meat with a topping of chili and mango. She wrote: “If I’m going to eat horse meat, it’s going to be my own.”
The 18-year-old posted on Facebook the story including photos of the meal she had cooked with the body of Drifting Speed.

But the teenager who grew up in a farmers ‘ family, was the subject of online backlash and was even threatened with death.
Talking to Norwegian news outlet Dagbladet, she said: Many wrote that for eating my own horse I too deserve to be killed. Another wrote that I should lose the right to have animals.
She also told them that the main bulk of threat came from other female horse riders, but she thinks that she was honouring her pet by using its body for food.

He continued on: “It’s not good for the meat to be buried and eaten by the worms.”
She also said that she believes that her upbringing on a farm means she has a different and more realistic relationship with animals and thinks differently about meat than others.
She decided to delete her post after the backlash, after it was shared with a Facebook group where it received thousands of responses.
She says she had an idea that it would attract negative reactions, saying it’s a ‘ taboo in the equine community ‘ but she wasn’t ready for the vitriol level she’d get. She still stands by her decision, though.
She added: “I don’t think we would be able to control what to do. Horse meat is a delicacy, so I felt it was all right to eat it if the horse had to be killed anyway.”
“It was some of the best meat we have eaten.” she said.
After it received thousands of responses, she attempted to have the humour page remove their post. She said she had just as much positive feedback when posted on an agriculture page
