Last Week…

Route Step “bad step at wire, vanned off” at Louisiana
Df Fabulous Flame “vanned off” at Remington

While not all the “vanned” end up dead, most do, as borne out by our year-end FOIA reports. But even if death is not the ultimate result, the above are victims nonetheless, suffering painful injuries – in the case of the bleeders, pulmonary hemorrhage – so that some men may gamble, others chase pots of gold. (For any new confirmed deaths during the week, please see our running annual list.)

  1. These lists of horses abused for racing and gambling are always gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. Every horse deserved better than to be used for this ABUSE, BRUTALITY, CRUELTY & DEATH.
