Breaking News: Whipping Hurts; Whipping Racehorses Is Animal Cruelty

Horseracing Wrongs

“Last year more than 100,000 people attended the Melbourne Cup, with more than 3 million watching the race on TV in Australia alone. This would have to make whipping in horse-racing the most public form of violence to animals in Australia today, but most people don’t seem to notice it. …most appear blithely unaware that they are actually watching horses being whipped … and hard.” (Dr. Paul McGreevy)

As advocates, it can be easy to get lost in any number of Horseracing’s sordid aspects: 2-year-olds, drugging/doping, corrupt “connections,” negligent vets, claiming races, etc. But for me, focus should be trained on two above all:

First and foremost, Horseracing kills horses – lots of them, every day.

Second, the horserace itself exists, can only exist, through brute force – the primary instrument of which is a whip. A whip. On this, Racing’s age-old lie (painless “guide”) has conditioned otherwise decent…

All the Serbian e mail addresses to which the letters should be sent are given in the first list.  EU listings are then supplied.

[Breaking News] No imprisonment for boiling 600 cats alive!!
KOREANDOGS.ORG

Apr 12, 2016 — This is update on the case “600 Stray Cats Boiled Alive”: http://koreandogs.org/600-stray-cats-boiled-alive/

Chung OO, who was charged in May of 2015 for capturing and boiling alive 600 stray cats which were sold to the “health food centers”, was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment, 2 years probation and 80 hours of community service on April 6, 2016 by Changwon Supreme Prosecutors’ Office. However, in Korea this means he will not go to prison and he will only go to prison if he commits the same criminal act within the 2 year probation period. Only if then, he will go to prison for 10 months plus the sentence for any new crime he commits. This is a slap on the wrist for such horrendous cruelty and the violation of the Animal Protection Act.

To protest this outrageous sentence and ask for an appeal of the sentencing, on April 11, Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA) and Korean Animal Welfare Association (KAWA) held a protest and a press conference in front of the Changwon Supreme Prosecutor’s office, but were unable to meet with the prosecutor. They plan to continue protests through one person relay protest in front of the Changwon Supreme Prosecutors’ Office.
