Thousands have signed a petition to ‘ban horse racing’ after three horses died at the Grand National.
Elle Est Belle died of a suspected heart attack and Discorama died of a pelvic injury and Eclair Surf died of a head injury after they raced in the Grand National.
The Petition says: ‘’Hundreds of horses die every year due to horse racing. Horses are such unique and intelligent animals, we don’t need to use them for entertainment.’’
‘’We are calling for the British Horseracing Authority to ban this unethical sport for the rich and greedy.’’
