Federal Failure Leaves Georgia Horses Racing to Their Deaths

In Georgia's shadowed corners, horses are trapped in a cycle of abuse and death on unregulated "bush tracks," where the law has failed them. Despite undeniable evidence of suffering – horses drugged, electrocuted, and collapsing – federal agencies retreated from a crucial raid, leaving these innocent animals to a grim fate.

We call on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to investigate why the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the FBI, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security stepped back from their duty, allowing cruelty to continue under Georgia's skies.

The shocking abandonment of an investigation into Rancho El Centenario, Georgia's notorious black-market race track, raises profound questions. Evidence, including harrowing videos and syringes filled with drugs, pointed to a world where horses are mere tools for profit, discarded when broken. Yet, when it came time to act, the call for justice was silenced, and the mission was aborted.

This isn't just about the betrayal of trust; it's a matter of life and death for these noble creatures. Their pain and loss scream for justice in silence, ignored by those with the power to intervene. The GAO's investigation is critical to peel back the layers of this neglect, to bring transparency and demand change.

It's time for the GAO to confront this neglect head-on, to ensure that such failures never happen again. Sign this petition to demand the GAO shed light on this failure of justice and hold those responsible accountable!
