It’s industrial horse torture: pregnant horses are being hooked up to machines and bled until they are so weak they collapse. As soon as they give birth, their foals are ripped away from their mothers and shipped off to slaughterhouses.
These beautiful creatures have the same emotions and awareness as toddlers – and they’re being tortured in the most sickening way. But they don’t need to die like this!
Secret cameras have helped expose the atrocious abuse of animals and forced governments in Spain and France to pass laws requiring surveillance where animals are handled -- so farms and factories do not become breeding grounds for the worst kind of animal cruelty.
If we replicate this smart strategy globally, we could pass the same laws for the whole of Europe, then bring these protections to the mega-factory farms in the US and Canada. All it takes is us coming together to fund thousands of cameras, legal support for undercover animal defenders, and a massive media blitz to make this footage go viral. Can you chip in to help?
