Turin, September 16 - Animal rights campaigners
reacted with outrage on Monday after organizers of the Asti
Palio decided to press ahead with the horse race even though one
of the animals involved died in a test for the event Sunday.
The National Body for the Protection of Animals (ENPA) also
reiterated its call for palio horse races, including the world
famous Siena Palio, to be banned, given the rate of horse deaths
and injuries they cause.
Dozens of horses have been killed in palios since World War
II.
"We are appalled to learn that the Asti Palio is taking
place anyway today despite the death if a horse in yesterday's
trials," ENPA said.
"At this point we ask what other tragedy has to take place
for the local institutions and organizers of palios, festivals
and events based on the exploitation of other beings, to
understand that these events pose serious risks for animals'
health, as well as being ethically unacceptable".
Former tourism minister Michela Vittoria Brambilla joined
in ENPA's calls for palio horse races to be banned.
