Arcadia, Calif. – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo regarding the breakdown of Mongolian Groom:
We will not tolerate another mangled horse. Get the drugs out, install CT scan equipment at every track, replace dirt tracks with synthetic ones, and ban whipping. This is now non-negotiable: The racing industry must make a choice between doing right by the horses or shutting down forever.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist view of the world. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
