Cancel The Cruel Moffat Sheep Race on 13th August 2017

On 13th August, naturally timid and quiet sheep will be made to race against each other through the streets of Moffat, Scotland, with teddy bears strapped to their backs. 

This is exploitative, degrading and frightening for the sheep, as crowds will be lining the streets, cheering and shouting. Animals are not ours to use for entertainment.

Please sign my petition to tell the organisers to cancel this event!

UPDATE: I have sent a letter to Moffat Council requesting the race be cancelled, and attached a copy of the letter that Peta wrote to them and a copy of the petition at nearly 80,000. I am awaiting their response.

Here is the official video for campaign song "I'm The Lamb" - please watch and like!

The song can be played and downloaded for free here.

Update #24 years ago
We have had a very disappointing response from the Moffat Community Council saying the sheep race will go ahead. Read their response here and politely let them know what you think on their Facebook page here. Comment on one of the Council's own posts to ensure more people see your feedback. Or email Council chairman at:
