Did you report it to the police or the RSPCA?
OF COURSE I DID. By the time I'd found a police officer, and by the time he decided to do something about it, the horse had been 'spirited away' (happens a lot).
I don't think I've mentioned tradition
I don't think I mentioned that you did.
Actually, it's implicit in the title of the thread.
Who's being picky now?
So what else are you doing about it apart from arguing here which can achieve nothing to stop it?
I wondered when that would come. I refuse to answer. Why are you arguing?
Why, if you are convinced the cruelty is a fundamental part of it?
I said no such thing. I want the Fair to continue, but not at any price. The cruelty must stop.
Just out of interest - why are you so belligerent towards someone who shares your abhorrence of horse cruelty?
