January 2004 On Sunday, January 18, 2004, NBC's Dateline aired a superb 8-minute documentary about the current PMU (Pregnant Mare Urine) industry crisis. Due to major downsizing of the industry*, thousands of pregnant mares, foals, and stallions are out of a job...and many have already been sold to slaughter.
Watch the streaming video, "The HRT Horses", and read the text on Dateline's website: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3995076/%20. (TRACS assisted Dateline by compiling information and, in conjunction with Last Chance for Animals, supplied video footage of our undercover investigation at a recent PMU mare auction.)
Please contact TRACS if you can adopt or sponsor rescued horses. E-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Sales of Premarin, PremPro and PremPhase have dropped since the National Institutes of Health halted a study in 2002 that revealed serious potential health risks to women using these drugs. Women are encouraged to speak with their physicians about alternate therapies.
January 2004 We have updated our links section to include organizations that have greatly helped PMU horses. click
