Prohibit the "Suicide Race" in Omak, Washington
This petition made change with 675 supporters!
This dangerous race puts the horses who are forced to sprint down a 210-foot-long 62-degree slope and then jump into the water, at risk of injury and death (23 have died since 1983 including one this year, who broke his leg during a qualifiying race). Veterinarian Dr. Heather Evergreen witnessed the race in 2006 and said that the race has obvious risks: running full speed down a steep hill, jumping off the top of the hill, and drowning in the water at the bottom. A Wall Street Journal reporter witnessed a horse break its back and be euthanized in 2007.
