Our Compass

BACKGROUND

Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, a racetrack and casino in New Orleans, will be holding zebra and ostrich races on January 12. Mounted by jockeys and subjected to rough handling amid chaos and screaming crowds, these terrified animals are forced to race around a track—a miserable ordeal that causes them fear and stress and can result in serious injuries.

Animals used for “entertainment” in traveling acts suffer terribly and need your voice! These zebras and ostriches endure constant anxiety, physical discomfort, and frustration—and they are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them.

Please urge Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots management to cancel these cruel races and replace them with a humane alternative.
