Chuck­wagon races cruel to­wards horses

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I have on more than one oc­ca­sion sent a let­ter to the Cal­gary Her­ald to voice my con­cern about the cruel and un­nec­es­sary death of horses dur­ing the chuck-wagon races at the Stam­pede. Of course there was no re­sponse that I know about and I keep a sharp look­out for Cal­gar­ian de­trac­tors.

Surely the Hu­mane So­ci­ety of that province is con­cerned about these races, which have sev­eral times re­sulted in the death of a horse.

We have so much un­pre­ventable mis­ery in this world why does any­one con­done such un­nec­es­sary bar­barism in the form of en­ter­tain­ment. Hi­lary Prince, Stratford
