The Market Bosworth Country Show on 1st July 2018 plans to include sheep racing. This will involve strapping a toy "jockey" to the backs of sheep and making them race against each other for the amusement of spectators.
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 Sheep are quiet, timid creatures and making them run in a crowded and noisy environment for our entertainment is outdated and wrong.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 seven 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 element of their show.
