Since shocking footage revealed thousands of racehorses are being slaughtered every year in Australia, the racing industry has gone to ground and avoided responsibility.
That’s why we need a Royal Commission into the cruelty and abuse in horse racing to hold the racing industry to account and protect horses.
We know state and federal governments are too captured by the racing and gambling industries to undertake a genuine review of animal cruelty in horse racing and gambling. Accountability and change will only come when a Royal Commission drags them kicking and screaming to the table.
Only a Royal Commission with the power to compel witnesses and open up the books will get to the bottom of the racing industry’s cruelty.
We cannot allow cruelty and suffering to go on. Join our campaign for a Royal Commission into the cruelty and abuse in horse racing today.
