Republic Act 8485, also known as the Animal Welfare Act, outlawed all horse fighting in 1998. However, with penalties ranging from a minimum of 1000 pesos (approx. £10) to a maximum of 5000 pesos (approx. £50), horse fighting organizers pay little heed

Take Action Now!

Horse fighting has been illegal since the enactment of the Animal Welfare Act in 1998, however lack of enforcement, endemic police corruption and large scale gambling have allowed it to flourish. Please write to the Philippines ambassador in your country and ask him politely to encourage the Filipino government to enforce the law against horse fighting or risk losing tourism revenue.

Thanks Simone, can't get on the site having so many problems with Care2 both yesterday, Saturday, and now again today.

Just what you wrote is disturbing to no end what next.

The Entire world is truly insane...I'm just truly in shock over all of the things I have learned happening lately...but, horse fighting, never knew about that one, and if and when I can get to the Site, for sure I will be signing and forwarding this one.
