    Default Horse jump racing..

    http://au.news.yahoo.com/sa/latest/a...sk-protesters/

    I'm always sorry to hear about death of an animal just for human amusement.
    But i'm curious to know as to why jump racing is so bad??

    Because animals can be injured or can die,I hate horse racing,it should be banned.

    Because there are more fatalities. First day of jump season in Victoria and one horse had to be put down.

    It's banned in all states apart from Vic and SA.

    The horses are running too fast, while trying to jump over things that are too high, all the while trying not to run into the 5other horses that are doing the same thing.

    There are ALWAYS fatalities at Jumps racing events. Its Banned in lots of states and territories. It needs to be banned australia wide. Its a disgusting sport

    When an animal's health is put at risk for the amusement of humans, it's disgusting and wrong and should be stopped.

    We also do not attend animal circuses or any racing events for this reason.

    I agree along with hours racing and circuses that use animals.
