Just before I left Calgary, Dairy Queen was rumored to be serving horse meat. Turns out that was not illegal—just illegal not to label it as such.

(So far as I know, the charge was never proven.)

These rumors pop up from time to time; McDonald's has also been accused of making burgers with horse meat. But they are usually debunked. 

Although, given that it's leaner and has more protein than beef, and at a fraction of the cost, you'd think places would be openly selling it...promoting it, even. 

But, there is a stigma, at least in America, surrounding eating horse meat. I suppose because they're considered to be intelligent animals? Pigs are generally shown to be smarter, though, and most meat-eaters don't have a problem there (or if so, not because of the intelligence factor).

There was a massive scandal in the U.K. around 2015 where loads of places were found to be using horse meat without knowing it. Think it had something to do with Eastern European country supplies.

That turned out to be true, so it can & does happen.

When I was in my early twenties, the hubbub going around was that McDonald's was using kangaroo meat.

Back in the 80's there was also that bs about Wendy's having worms in their hamburgers.

To what end? It seems kangaroo meat would be more expensive - and more difficult to obtain - than beef (or chicken), in the U.S., anyway.

Kangaroo meat is quite healthy too, and yes more expensive, so that would be an all-round improvement over the Grade Z beef McDonald's uses :)

My heart absolutely understands putting horses in the same category as cats and dogs as regards foods we are "forbidden" to eat; however, my head can't help but think it's a little hypocritical.  

Also, think about it - in the year 2019 to have certain meat/food "forbidden" to us isn't much different than the superstitious dietary rules certain religions employ.
