Ban pony rides and pig races at south florida youth fair
This petition had 1,740 supporters
All the pig races, petting zoos, pony rides and other animal-based entertainments that pop up at pumpkin patches, corn mazes and harvest festivals this time of year are exploitative, and they all send the message that animals are ours to use and abuse. Please consider sharing this meme on the social media pages of events that feature these kind of abusive acts.
Tethered tightly to turnstiles and forced to plod in endless circles, ponies can suffer from hoof ailments and are often left sore and chafed from ill-fitting equipment. Equines are specifically excluded from protection under the federal Animal Welfare Act, and if local or state authorities fail to intervene, the outcome can be deadly.
