A horse has been found with 60% beef in it. Which technically makes it a cow but the animal is very confused.
It has raised concern over how many other horses are infact cows and therefore potentially contaminating our favourite foods.
Consumers are being reassured however that any 'beef' or cow meat found in their stallion burgers, Findus crispy horsecakes, horsagnes etc is harmless and that not long ago people actually used to eat cow meat. Or as they called it - 'beef'.
It really was a different time.
It is thought cross breeding may have occurred wherever grazing horses are in close proximity to cowracing tracks and stables.
Next weeks Gold Cup at Aintree will see all supposed thoroughbred cows tested for horse DNA.
