Network For Animals need your help to end the brutal bloodsport of Organized Horse Fighting in the southern Philippines.
The sound of cheering reverberates through the arena, from a crowd made up of gamblers, elected officials, gangsters, families, even small children. In each fight two beautiful stallions are made to fight brutally over a poor mare, paraded in front of them as their ‘prize’. Over a weekend fiesta of horse fighting, tens, even hundreds of horses are violently wounded, while the mares are subjected to repeated mounting by the ‘victor’ of each bout.
Network for Animals are battling a cruelty that is illegal, yet ingrained in southern Filipino society, and taking a stand means moving against organised crime in an area where gun carrying is the norm, not the exception. We have been victorious in Bukidnon, North Cotabato and Davos City. Use your voice today, to help us urge the Philippine president to end Organized Horse Fighting.
