Animal Aid-Reports: Victory! Horse Slaughter Rules Tightened-Ascot

16 06 2007

Animal Aid and the Daily Express have forced the Ascot horse sales to change its rules. The move follows a joint undercover investigation – as a result of which, a race horse who was destined for the abattoir was given a secure future at the Midland Racehorse Care Centre. The Ascot horse sales, shocked by the public exposure, have tightened their regulations so that any horses sold in future will be “used for equine disciplines and not for slaughter” .This represents one more important step in an ongoing Animal Aid campaign to end the exploitation of Thoroughbred horses by the racing industry.
