Cancel the camel racing at this British music festival
Sign Now

In nature, camels only run fast when they’re in danger. Forcing them to run for the entertainment of humans is cruel.

And yet, a UK music festival called Todd in the Hole plans to have a camel racing event on 21st and 22nd July. Not only is this cruel to these naturally calm and quiet-natured animals, it’s potentially hazardous to bystanders. The camels could easily get spooked by loud or unexpected noises, and behave erratically.

Care2 member Samantha has had lots of success with her petitions to cancel other animal races: eight sheep races and a pig race have already been stopped thanks to her Care2 campaigns. Now she’s standing up for camels.

Will you join Samantha in demanding this camel race is stopped?

Thank you,

Beth G.

P.S. Organisers could run an alternative event that doesn’t involve animals, such as allowing humans to compete in fun races . Sign the petition to demand the camels are kept out of the festival.
