(USA) USDA: Ban The Use of Calf Weaning Rings
Another heartless, hideous horror perpetrated on the voiceless, innocent animals! Please take action! Sign the petition to end this!
It’s straight out of a horror movie: hundreds of pregnant horses hooked up to blood-draining machines, some so weak they collapse and die. But we can stop this right now.
The industrial horse torture is driven by European pharmaceutical companies who use the blood to speed up factory farming! The EU has said it’s considering action, but so far nothing has happened.
No more horses need to die! Ministers are meeting in just 2 weeks — let’s light a fire under the EU with a massive million-person petition demanding they ban the abusive pregnant horse blood trade. Add your name to the petition below *with one click* and tell everyone:
To the EU Parliament, Commission, and Council:
We call on you to ban the import to Europe of any goods produced using techniques which are cruel and cause suffering to animals. As a world leader in animal welfare, Europe should apply its own standards to products it imports.
Death is far from the only horror: so much blood is taken that it can lead to shock and anemia. And because only the blood of pregnant horses is valuable, they’re often forced into repeat pregnancies and abortions.
Demand is driven by pharmaceutical companies who sell the hormone found in pregnant horse blood to factory farmers to get pigs and other animals in “heat” on demand — another layer of abuse in this sorry story.
If we shine a light on this horror by raising a massive global outcry now, we can help get a ban of all products made from the suffering of animals — making it difficult for companies all over the world to make big profits from this disturbing industry. Add your name to the petition above with one click on the link, then forward this to friends and family — let’s build pressure on the EU to act!
Horses are full of beauty, grace and majesty — it’s hard to understand how people could be so cruel. But when we come together in massive numbers to protect animals from the horrors they face every day, we can do incredible things. Let’s do it now for these horses who need us to be their voice more than ever.
