AIA Sickened by Death of Three Race Horses at Cheltenham Festival

Horse racingThe Animal Interfaith Alliance is sickened and appalled at the death of three race horses yesterday at the Cheltenham Festival and is calling on the government to ban this lethal event.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Govaness, Pont Alexandre and Rezorbi, the three horses who so tragically lost their lives yesterday.

The event went ahead despite the fact that 49 race horses had already lost their lives since the year 2000 at the Cheltenham Festival, which is nothing better than a graveyard for horses.  Television coverage hid these tragedies from view and therefore conspired with the organisers to perpetuate the deaths.

Please write to your MP and ask them to call for the banning of this event in Parliament.
