I'm not generally a fan of PETA either. I contacted them recently about the Texas Hunt Lodge where people can pay to shoot domesticated exotic animals for sport, including Zebras and the sacred White Buffalo. :( They told me they don't deal with that kind of issue and to contact the HSUS. I was like, "Not what they deal with? What the hell do they deal with?" I wanted to contact them about the Omak Suicide Race, but I don't think it will matter. Makes me sad. :( In addition, the HSUS does not do enough. They can barely take care of dogs and cats, let alone livestock and exotics.
They did do this video though and you can't deny what is shown. The granddaughter of Seattle Slew in this video almost sent me into hysterics. I'm a major empath and to see that and know the pain she was feeling and still running was too much.
