Furchtbare Situation im Pferde-Renn“sport“ – überall und speziell in Kanada wegen Ende der staatl. Förderung des Renn“sports“

Es gibt eine so einfache Lösung, die einzige:
keine halbe Sache machen – Zuchtverbot und damit endlich Ende der Tierquälerei
namens Pferde“sport“:

Rennsport: Tod für bis zu 3000 gesunde Fohlen

Posted: 04 May 2012 10:38 AM PDT

Foals being euthanized

KANADA/Ontario – Die Beendigung der staatl. Förderung für den Rennsport in Ontario führt nun dazu, dass bis zu 3000 gesunde Fohlen sofort nach der Geburt getötet werden. Der Züchter wartet regelrecht mit der Spritze neben der gebärenden Mutter; das Fohlen lebt nur wenige Minuten. Für die Stuten, die dann vor der Leiche stehen, ohne jemals Kontakt zu ihrem Kind gehabt zu haben, ist dies eine Katastrophe.

Die Züchter geben an die teure Aufzucht der Tiere lohne sich nicht, wenn kein Markt mehr da wäre, und töten so lieber die Fohlen als den finanziellen Ruin zu riskieren. Die Tötungen begannen vor ca. 1 Monat, zu Beginn der Geburtensaison.

Die kan. Kollegen bitten um Ideen und Mithilfe; sind aber im Moment hilflos.

Foals euthanized in Canada as provincial funding of harness racing ends

Posted by VGFarrell (tuesdayshorse.wordpress.com/au…) on Apr 27, 2012 (tuesdayshorse.wordpress.com/20…) in Horse Racing (tuesdayshorse.wordpress.com/ca…)

The decision to end provincial funding for Ontario’s harness racing may kill more than the industry – it’s resulting in the death of an unknown number of this year’s crop of new foals.

QMI Agency spoke to a number of sources who say breeders are now are euthanizing their foals moments after birth because they fear financial ruin if they have to raise the horses with no chance of recouping their investment.

The practice is happening because of the cost of raising horses, which can approach $10,000 — not including stud fees which range between $2,500 and $20,000.

Standardbred Canada Registrar Pat Kennedy said her organization’s figures show 130 stallions bred nearly 4,000 mares in Ontario. The number of foals resulting is estimated to be in the 70% range, meaning 3,000 births this year.

She said the crisis means owners may not breed mares, nor register them.

A local horse owner who asked not to be identified, said euthanizing healthy foals began at the start of the birthing season — about a month ago.

Foals being euthanized

The decision to end provincial funding for Ontario’s harness racing may kill more than the industry – it’s resulting in the death of an unknown number of this year’s crop of new foals.

QMI Agency spoke to a number of sources who say breeders are now are euthanizing their foals moments after birth because they fear financial ruin if they have to raise the horses with no chance of recouping their investment.

The practice is happening because of the cost of raising horses, which can approach $10,000 — not including stud fees which range between $2,500 and $20,000.

Standardbred Canada Registrar Pat Kennedy said her organization’s figures show 130 stallions bred nearly 4,000 mares in Ontario. The number of foals resulting is estimated to be in the 70% range, meaning 3,000 births this year.

She said the crisis means owners may not breed mares, nor register them.

A local horse owner who asked not to be identified, said euthanizing healthy foals began at the start of the birthing season — about a month ago.

“They (the breeders) definitely don’t want to be doing this, but without knowing there’s going to be some sort of stability in the industry, they feel like they don’t have a choice,” the person said.

“It’s not cheap to raise a horse. When you have to worry about feeding your mare, other horses, and your family, that stud fee just isn’t something a lot of people are prepared to pay without knowing they’ll recoup the cost.”

Brian Tropea, the general manager of the Ontario Harness Race Association, said he agreed “100 per cent” with the statement.

“There’s a definite sense of panic here,” said Tropea in an interview.

“I haven’t heard that (breeders euthanizing foals) personally, but it’s a definite possibility.”

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission’s March announcement to end its revenue-sharing agreement with racetrack site-holders shocked the industry, said Tropea, who added that people within the racehorse industry became unsettled very quickly.

He said breeders made decisions 11 months ago to breed their mares, expecting to pay stud fees after the foals were born healthy.

“When they made those decisions, they were all hoping to raise healthy, strong foals,” Tropea said.

“For the government to cut their legs off, it was completely irresponsible.”

Had the government’s and the OLG’s plans been announced or eluded to even three years ago, Tropea said the province’s horse breeding industry wouldn’t be in a financial bind today.

He said racehorses are bred until early July, and the length of conception is 11 months. Racing starts for some horses as early as two years old, giving breeders a chance to begin to recoup their costs. But if there’s no hope to ever race the horse, raising it to be sold as a pleasure horse could be prohibitive.

On average, a breeder can look to spend about $2,500 a year for veterinary care, $130 a month for shoes, approximately $10 a day for lodging and food, all on top of the stud fee, which can range anywhere from $2,000 to $20,000.

“For most people in the industry, they’ll feed their horses before they feed themselves,” Tropea said.

“When you’ve got other horses to look after though, and when most people work another full-time job just to support themselves (while racing), something like that could seem like the only way.”

He said Ontario has been advertised heavily as a being the best place to breed horses in North America. People from all over the world have bred their horses in the province, and with the changes recently implemented that will likely come to a halt.

“We’re going to be missing opportunities now,” Tropea said.

“This has been one of the biggest injustices.”

Horses are generally sold between 18 and 20 months, and range in cost depending on breeding stock.

“If there’s no racing industry, those foals that used to go for $20,000 are going to be sold for $500 to $600,” Tropea said.

“You watch – people are going to start paying people to buy their horses.”

und wegen Tierquälerei nach TSchG – leider nur – 3 Jahre mit Trense im Maul, Rollkur und Schenkelbrand in Knast, was noch viel zu human für diese selbsternannten sog. Pferdefreunde ist! Aber Politiker, Behörden und Juristen kennen keine Gesetzeserfüllung, keinen Anstand, keine Moral. Geld, Geld, Geld.
Es ist verboten,
einem Tier, an dem Eingriffe und Behandlungen vorgenommen worden sind, die …
Leistungen abzuverlangen denen es wegen seines körperlichen Zustandes nicht gewachsen ist,
an einem Tier im Training oder bei sportlichen Wettkämpfen oder ähnlichen Veranstaltungen Maßnahmen, die mit erheblichen Schmerzen, Leiden oder Schäden
verbunden sind und die Leistungsfähigkeit von Tieren beeinflussen können, anzuwenden.
TSchG § 3, 1a und 1b
Bei schlechten Beamten nützen selbst die besten Gesetze nichts.
Fürst Otto von Bismarck
wobei hier von bestem Gesetz keine Rede ist, es reicht dennoch aus, wenn Behörden und Richter es anwenden würden.
Das Gesetz ist das Eigentum einer unbedeutenden Klasse von Vornehmen und Gelehrten, die sich durch ihr eignes Machwerk die Herrschaft zuspricht.
Georg Büchner
Der Kapitalismus basiert auf der seltsamen Überzeugung, daß widerwärtige Menschen mit widerwärtigen Motiven irgendwie für das Gemeinwohl sorgen könnten.
John Maynard Keynes
Noch sitzt ihr da oben, ihr feigen Gestalten, vom Feinde bezahlt und dem Volke zum Spott. Doch einst wird wieder Gerechtigkeit walten, dann richtet das Volk, und es gnade euch Gott.
Carl Theodor Körner

Die Dornenkrone der Schöpfung hat die Erde zu einem einzigen gigantischen Friedhof gemacht. Es starben und sterben viele wertvolle Tiere durch die Hand wertloser Menschen. Eine parasitär und asozial lebende Menschheit vermehrt sich täglich um 200.000 Köpfe. Das ist d i e apokalyptische Zahl für unsere geschundene Erde und die Ursache dafür, daß die Zukunft von Natur, Tieren und Menschen vernichtet wird. Für die Tiere hat der Teufel keinen Klumpfuß und keine Hörner, sondern eine Menschenfratze.
