Louisville, Ky. – Please see this video from PETA of the deadly harm of Misplaced in Limbo at Churchill Downs at this time and the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo:
Churchill Downs wants a fleet of equine ambulances to hold the fatally wounded horses out of public view. Immediately, Misplaced in Limbo grew to become the 11th fatality since April 27 when he crashed nose-first on the monitor and lay heaving within the dust. The horse ought to have been eradicated earlier than the race when he threw the jockey and took flight. It’s not clear whether or not a veterinarian examined him after his escape. Churchill Downs is complicit on this carnage for not shutting down this monitor to implement lifesaving modifications. CEO Invoice Carstanjen must cease hoping issues will get higher, be a pacesetter, and take motion now. If he gained’t, the Kentucky Horse Racing Fee must do it for him.
PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals should not ours to make use of for leisure or abuse in some other approach”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data, please go to PETA.org or observe the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
