Horses rolling down Horses strangled by people Horses surrounded by unfamiliar crowd A horseman clutches tightly to the horses back Bits are tightly pulled Horses are usually timid and are unable to move forward when strangers surround them. Such animals are in a situation where people in colorful clothes, unfamiliar men who are excited, and there is a tall wall in front of them.

Ex-owl cafe worker speaks out

We have received information from a whistle-blower who previously worked at an owl cafe.  The conditions which owls live under in this kind of establishment are unimaginably inhumane, being forced to just stay still and endure their circumstances.
