Ain't No Party Like a Horse Meat Party

In Coral Gables, it's wine and cheese. Along Calle Ocho, it's mojitos and arroz con pollo. In SoBe, it's vodka-Red-Bull and air.

Deep in the farmlands of South Miami, apparently, they get down with Heineken and horse meat.

On July 3, an anonymous tip alerted Miami-Dade cops to this bin sitting along the side of SW 214th Street near 206th Avenue. "It looks like somebody must have been having a party," posits Det. Mario Fernandez,lead investigator of the county's horse-slaughtering phenomenon.

The revelers responsible haven't been nabbed. Click through for closer photos of the bin's contents.
