Appalling: Veterinary inspection allows abuse of horses 05/06/2024

Hitting horses with a whip, scars on the skin, causing pain to horses by pulling their reins, are just some of the distressing scenes witnessed by activists from the Animal Friends organization at yesterday's straparade in Strmec Bukevski near Velika Gorica. "We are shocked that gross violations of the law and blatant horse abuse took place in front of the veterinary inspection, which ignored our request to ban this event. This is not a log-pulling competition, but rather horse abuse!" stated Animal Friends Croatia. They say it's unacceptable that the veterinary inspection turned a blind eye even to the basic fact, that men were directly pulling reins causing additional stress, fear, and pain to the horses. Animal Friends emphasizes that horse pulling competitions with heavy logs are illegal because they violate numerous provisions in the field of veterinary medicine and animal protection, promoting animal abuse. A petition has been launched to explicitly ban this cruel and shameful practice in the Animal Protection Act.
