We love when public opinion is powerful enough to make serious changes for the better, for all. Petitions are an excellent way to increase public awareness of serious issues and garner support for them.

Recently, two inhumane “sheep races” were canceled due to public protest from petitions, and now, thanks to your participation, yet another sheep race has been canceled! The Llandovery Sheep Festival in Wales announced they respect people’s right to voice their viewpoints, and they will no longer be conducting sheep races at their events this September 23rd and 24th.

The woman who set up the petition, Samantha Francis, said, “Using animals for entertainment sends us back to the dark ages and is inexcusable … Sheep are not playthings here for our amusement at their expense.”

An Animal Concern Advice Line spokesperson, John Robins, said, “I am very pleased this race has been canceled …The natural habitat and behavior of sheep does not include being chased down a main street while being cheered on by a crowd of 5,000 people … Sheep racing clearly breaches animal welfare laws and is by no means the comical entertainment you might first think it is. The animals used would be terrified.”

If you are as thrilled as we are that another sheep race has been canceled, please share this good news with your friends and family!
