Second horse dies at Calgary Stampede
VANCOUVER, Juy 8, 2015 /CNW/ - The Vancouver Humane Society (VHS) is repeating its call for the immediate suspension of the Calgary Stampede chuckwagon race, following the death of a second horse in three days at the event.
"People across Canada are outraged and they are sick of hearing about the needless death of horses at the Stampede," said VHS spokesperson Peter Fricker.
VHS says the Stampede should suspend the race and establish a panel of independent equine experts to determine if anything can be done to make the race safer.
