Don't bet on the horses [...]; FEEDBACK.
The victims were Our Conor, Akdam, Stack The Deck and Raya Star. This is an attrition rate four times higher than that found in racing as a whole and twice the death rate when only jump racecourses are considered.
For more than a decade, Animal Aid has exposed and protested against the cruelty involved in horse racing. Every year, roughly 200 horses lose their lives on racecourses and around 1,000 horses from the racing industry are killed in UK slaughterhouses.
With the Grand National approaching fast, we'd like to remind readers there is an alternative to supporting such events.
Our Sanctuary Not Cruelty initiative invites would-be punters - or those who take part in Grand National sweepstakes - to send any money they might have bet on the big race to horse sanctuaries instead. They desperately need your help to look after the equine victims of human cruelty, greed and neglect.
