Preparations to sedate as many as 300 horses stabled at Belgrade’s racecourse to keep them calm during a Rolling Stones concert have enraged Serb animal lovers who are lobbying to have the gig moved to another venue.
The concert is expected to draw more than 100,000 people to the Hippodrome, Belgrade’s largest fenced space. The horses will be only a few meters from the stage. Link
Apparently officials think that moving the horses would be even more stressful for them. Did anyone at least think to stock up on cotton for their ears?
