SIGN: Shut Down Race Track that’s Killed 21 Horses in Just 2 Months
Posted by Katie Valentine
PETITION TARGET: Arcadia, California Mayor Sho Tay
In the past two months, 21 horses have needlessly died at the Santa Anita Park horseracing track in Arcadia, California.
These horses are being worked to death, forced to race with fractures and broken bones. One even suffered a heart attack.
The most recent victim was a 4-year-old filly Eskenforadrink, who was tragically put down from an ankle injury.
Rather than do the morally responsible thing and shut down the track for good, racing activities have merely been suspended. The cruel races could resume any day, putting even more horses’ lives in danger.
It’s time to shut down this track of horrors for good.
Sign this petition urging Mayor Sho Tay to do everything in his power to put the facility out of business, and place the lives of these innocent horses before profit.
