Say neigh to unnecessary slaughter

In the wake of recent uproar and calls to ban live exports of sheep and cattle, there has been a new campaign to stop racehorses that are too slow, from being sold for dogmeat. These wasteful breeding practices used by the horseracing industry mean that over 10,000 horses are slaughtered in Australia every year.

The Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses has recently brought the issue to light in a bid to reduce the slaughter of healthy animals.

Bill Walter spoke with Elio Celotto, spokesperson for the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses to talk to us about the issue.
