Mane Meal: Shoppers Use Magic to Find Horse Meat

Suspicious shoppers have turned to divine intervention to work out which supermarket meals have secretly got horse meat in them.

A bizarre new video of a shopper shows her using a pendulum to work out which sausages to buy at the cooked meat counter of a budget supermarket in Poland.

The traditional tool is normally used by faith healers and fortune tellers to make predictions or find ancient magical ley lines.

But the video shows a middle aged woman reading the content notes on two packets of sausages.

The she pulls out a weighted pendulum which spins over both packs before settling on one.

"It's very strange. But you can see the pendulum spinning crazily between the two packs before it stops abruptly above on them," said one viewer.

"She makes her choice and puts the other ones back.

"What makes it extra spooky is that the sausages she's rejected then jump out of the rack onto the floor.

"Maybe they were one racehorses in an earlier life?" they added.
