The Betsey Wynne plan to hold a sheep racing day on 28th July.
Sheep racing is cruel and unnecessary. Sheep are quiet, timid creatures and making them run in a crowded and noisy environment for our entertainment is outdated and wrong. These cruel events must end. Animals are not ours to use for entertainment.
Lambentations has already successfully got eight sheep races and a pig race cancelled using Care2 petitions, so these petitions do work.
Please sign now to show the organisers how much public opposition there is to sheep racing and ask them to cancel this event and replace it with something that does not involve the exploitation of animals.
