Wild horse roundup in Spain

Men catch a horse during the “Rapa Das Bestas” event in Mougas, northwestern Spain. Throughout the summer, hundreds of wild horses are rounded up, trimmed and groomed in different villages in Galicia. Link

Oh, I don’t think so, that is definitely not the way I want to catch a horse.

As well as being rounded up and “trimmed and groomed”, these frightened horses are also crammed into unsuitable lorries and transported via France to Italy for slaughter. This is no way to treat a horse. But maybe that is irrelevant if human pleasure and tradition are more important that respect for other creatures.

You would be supprised at the tourists including English who think that to see all the horses being rounded up and stallion fighting is great entertainment!!
Many of the young colts go for slaughter when caught and travel on to other countries!!

It appears that those so-called humans are more animals than those poor horses. These so-called humans don’t have any sense at all for the feelings of horses. These horses have families just like so-called humans, and to see that they become separated makes me sick. I’ll never go to Spain any more.
