Animals in sport andentertainment
The RSPCA is opposed to the use of animals for entertainment or in sport, where animals are placed at high risk of injury, suffering or distress. The RSPCA believes all animals should be afforded the Five Freedoms and based on this, we regularly campaign for improved welfare standards for animals used in a variety of ways for sport and entertainment. This includes elephants in zoos, horses used for carriage rides, cows and horses used in rodeos as well as racing events featuring greyhounds and horses.
