Animal rights activists call for Irish horse racing ban
LONDON: Ireland's animal rights activists have renewed their demands for the government to ban horse racing in the country after five horses were killed during the Leopardstown Christmas festival last month.
The Alliance for Animal Rights has called on the government to end the multi-million dollar industry as a result of the fatalities.
Their call has been received by activists, who say the inhumane practice has left too many animals dead as a result.
