This reminds me of the classic American noir short story “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?”

Brutal, and absolutely magnificent.

I've never read the story and now I want to, but I've seen the movie and it too is brutal and magnificent. Remembering the movie was what made me want to post the news story. When I think of how I felt watching the movie, it was like watching an episode of "Black Mirror" that pointed the mirror toward the near past instead of the near future.
