Irish horses sold out to highest bidder...the animals nightmare CHINA!

Horse Racing Kills.

Press Release
IRISH HORSES BETRAYED….as Irish Government plans to export to China…a country steeped in animal abuse. It goes without saying that being a thoroughbred racehorse gets you no better treatment from those who exploit you.
As horse racing pundits in the UK give lip service to the horse killings at the Grand National we do not hear many racing supporters condemning the move by the Irish Government to supply China with Irish horses.
End Horse Racing -the cruelty cannot be eliminated without a ban.
End Horse Racing -the cruelty cannot be eliminated without a ban.

The racing venture and racecourse proposed in China will require 600 to 800 horses for its inaugural year, which is targeted to have approximately 40 race days. This venture is to be stocked with broodmares from Ireland, while stallions will also be sent out. Also it does not seem to matter to Taoiseach Enda Kenny that Hong Kong is the only venue on Chinese soil where betting on horses is legal and that authorities are unlikely to legalise gambling on the mainland anytime soon. While Ireland has no agreement regarding the export of horses, according to the DOA the changes are being drafted now.
‘If there was any doubt that the new IRELAND-CHINA ‘deal’ will mean untold suffering to Irish animals, we only have to look at past and current horse events in China to foretell the future for our horses’.
Following is a chronicle of known HORSE ABUSE already part of life in China….
• Not many know that in 2005 at the Beijing racetrack over 600 healthy thoroughbreds were reported to have been slaughtered in the Chinese capital. This was as a consequence of the official reluctance by the Chinese Communist Party to tolerate gambling. This mass killing was unprecedented even in the harsh world of horseracing.
• Zoos across China are still putting on cruel exotic animal performances, three months after they were banned by the government. In one show in Guangxi Zhuang this month, crowds cheered as a tiger teetered on the back of a horse, while monkeys, with chains around their necks, rode bicycles around in circles.
• Horse Fighting is still rife in China where evidence and shocking photos of two stallions covered in blood and ferociously biting each other the annual horsefight in Antai, China, where such animal cruelty is considered 'sport'. At the annual event, which dates back a staggering 500 years, horses are pitted against each other as thousands of locals watch, with many cheering them on and taking photographs. The stallions are encouraged to fight by being lead to a mare in heat, and then taking the female horse away when the stallions are aroused.
‘We call on Enda Kenny, Taoiseach to reconsider his stance on Horse exports to China and to condemn both Chinas animal and human abuses without further delay’.

Due to the Daily Mail's incorrect information the other day, I felt I had to correct the articles running the information from that newspaper. Chinese activists have campaigned long and hard for years to end animal circuses and also live feeding of animals to other animals in zoos. Their campaigning paid off last year in January 2011 NOT January 2012 when animal circuses in all 300 owned by the state were banned. They also banned the live feeding of animals to other animals at the same time.

Whilst I agree that animals should not be exported to any country, I felt I owed it to the Chinese campaigners who work tirelessly every day, risking arrest and the members in my group who do all they can for the animals. There are over 212 KNOWN Animal welfare/rescue orgs in China and a draft law for domestic animals (there already is a law in place for wild animals) is due to be passed next year in 2013.

If anyone wants proof of the ban being brought in in January 2011 and not in january 2012 please email me at karaoke-queen@hotmail.co.uk or join my facebook group for up to date information on China's and other Asian countries Animal Activists.
Thank you
