Cancel Inhumane Sheep Race at Festival

Target: HRH The Prince of Wales, Patron of the Llandovery Sheep Festival

Goal: Do not force sheep to race in cruel event at the Llandovery Sheep Festival.

Sheep are naturally meek and quiet animals, but for the entertainment of festival goers, they will be forced into a highly stressful, loud, and aggressive atmosphere to race each other. The Llandovery Sheep Festival, which will be held in Wales, will include a sheep race despite the strain and fear that shouting crowds and competition will cause.

Recently, four other animal races in the UK were cancelled before they happened due to public opposition of the cruel and unnecessary practice. Petitions written by activists received tens of thousands of signatures in defense of innocent animals. Sign below to protect these animals and demand that the Llandovery Sheep Festival follow suit and cancel its inhumane sheep race.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prince Charles,

The sheep race scheduled to take place at the Llandovery Sheep Festival is a shocking and cruel event and must be cancelled. Innocent animals should never be put through stress, fear, and pain purely for the sake of human amusement. Many other animal races—three other sheep races and a pig race—have recently been cancelled: a testament to the growing awareness that practices such as these are inhumane and should be stopped.

By nature, sheep are meek, timid, and quiet animals. Dressing them up and forcing them into a competitive environment, particularly one in which they will be surrounded by shouting crowds, amounts to abuse and is sure to cause them unnecessary distress and harm. I urge you to ensure that the Llandovery Sheep Festival’s sheep race is cancelled.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
