A Miami club has had its business license revoked after a video of a woman riding a horse on the dance floor went viral.
At Mokai Lounge in Miami Beach, guests captured shocking footage of a woman riding the horse, who quickly became agitated. The horse throws the woman off its back before staff members lead it away. Social media users say the horse was brought in for entertainment purposes.
A statement from the City of Miami Beach says that officials are aware of the previous night’s incident involving possible animal cruelty and a hazard to public safety, and that they have revoked the business license for Mokai Lounge.
“Animal cruelty is an abhorrent and vile act,” said Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber. “I fully support the immediate actions taken by the City Manager and his staff to ensure that this is remedied quickly.”
