HBO sued concerning treatment of horses during the filming of the series “Luck”
Isn’t it bad enough that horses are abused in horse racing? Did a series about horse racing have to go this route – allegedly at least?
A lawsuit charges a number of horses were drugged, underweight and sick during the production of the show. And the Guardian reports this – “” Barbara Casey’s suit filed Monday says she was wrongfully fired from her post at the American Humane Association after complaining about the conditions horses faced on the show … “” And it is claimed that four horses died during the filming.
Maybe we need movie based on the treatment of horses in the racing industry.
