Still No Action to Protect Horses

The MSPCA wants to see action before more horses suffer and die from exhaustion and folklore husbandry. Every utility role historically occupied by horses has been filled by technology, making its role in transportation a dubious tradition.

Knowing all too well how many poisons, natural and artificial, produce a long drawn out and painful death, without knowing the actual ingredient, no one should sup
