The 2013 Hialeah Fair in Hialeah, Florida will have Banana Derby Monkey Jockeys races every day at this year’s event, scheduled to run from November 22, 2013 through December 1, 2013.
This shameful act, shown in video footage posted on the Hialeah Fair website, features monkeys dressed in costumes, cruelly strapped and chained to the backs of dogs who race around a makeshift track.
ADI is contacting Fair producer Wade Shows to express our dismay and ask that they immediately cancel the Banana Derby Monkey Jockeys and adopt a “no animals” policy for all future events.
