Speak Out Against the Omak Suicide Race

Every year, as part of their annual Rodeo, a small town in Eastern Washington State hosts the Omak Suicide Race, a deadly competition that has killed at least 20 horses since 1983. The race was held again this year from August 10th to 13th. Thankfully, no deaths occurred, but the horses may not be so fortunate next time. Please “Take Action” to urge Omak Mayor Dale Sparber to make 2006 the last year the Suicide Race is run.
