New York – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo regarding the sentencing of racehorse doper Seth Fishman to 11 years in prison:
Seth Fishman’s 11-year prison sentence is just, but punishment shouldn’t be limited to him: This crooked veterinarian had more than 2,000 clients in the horse racing world who kept him in business, and those who knowingly cheated and had him drug their horses need to be behind bars, too.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
