Anti-horse racing demo

Date, Time & Location Sat 10 Apr 2010, 12-2pm William Hill betting shop, 171 West St.
Details On horse racing awareness week, Sheffield Animal Friends will be spreading the word about the cruelty involved in this "sport". Approximately 18,000 foals are born into the closely-related British and Irish racing industries each year, yet only around 40% go on to become racers. Those horses who do not make the grade may be slaughtered for meat or repeatedly change hands in a downward spiral of neglect. Of those horses who do go on to race, around 420 are raced to death every year. Sheffield Animal Friends website
