So your not concerned about the 135,000 other horses that get sent from the US to Canada or Mexico for slaughter?
Or the thousands of rabbits killed in greyhound racing? Or the 15k greyhound killed each year?
The hundred foxes killed by fox hunts.
Funny how you don't point out how poorly jockeys are treated, from your own source.
Or we just pick and choose when we want to ruin someone else's thread. If you have an issue with horse destruction, start your own thread.
800 racehorses die each year, 3500 are injured on the track. It is a specieis with long, fragile legs.
The majority of the lower ranked horses die because the only money to make off them is through racing. So yes,they are doped up with illegal drugs and
most race horses are raced too early.
The injuries are half in England where there is an all out ban, and doping cant be hidden under states laws.
If upper ranked horses come from more prestigious stables that can afford to rehab them and make their money off of breeding, not racing. And those
are the races we are watching.
In 1970, there were a million wild horses in the US. Now there are only 25,000. Taxpayers are paying to hold about 35,000, to starve on pastures. The
burns act lets the BLM now sell a mustang over 10 years old be sold for a buck for slaughter.
How well do you think that is working out? Obviously?
So we have 135,000 members of the horse population being exported for slaughter, and about 900,000 missing mustangs.
but you go on with your bad self and your 800 racehorses.
