21 polo horses dead due to pharmacy mistake

(Ok, forget the big picture that maybe the entire idea of using animals for sport should be re-examined, but at the very least...)

.... hopefully state and local officials will do a genuine investigation into this weekend tragedy in Palm Beach, Florida and prosecute in a meaningful way...

Read more on Fox Sports/MSN.

I am confused. There was a reference in the press to a vitamin supplement that is illegal in the US -- the 5 horses on the team that lived are the only ones who didn't get it.

Is the "medication" that was compounded the same thing as the vitamin supplement?

It's a legal sustance - BUT just sickens me to see how careless this pharmacy that messed up is.

I'm glad to see you guys highlight this. Something needs to be done about this atrocity.

I wrote about it in an animal rights blog I just started (but not as good as yours!!!) -

Also FYI - and Dogreatgood are donating a portion of every search to the Humane Society & Petfinders - as well as $200,000 to the ASPCA this year alone.

Now we can help by searching there instead of the BIGGER guys!!!

Continue to spread the word - it’s great!!!!
