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. WHAT ELSE IS NEW? We need to get dirty money out of the torture and willful murder of racing other living species. Racing horses, or any other living creature is a sadistic, ego-driven, greedy, arrogant choice of those who cease power. More aware, conscious people must step forward and dissolve ego-driven, profit-seeking racing organizations. The time for change is long overdue. Humanity MUST evolve!
