Race horses killed over unpaid UIF

A 49-year old man has been arrested on charges of public violence and malicious damage to property after the violent protest at the Fairview Race course in Port Elizabeth. Horse groomers and members of the community from the nearby informal settlement stormed the yard and let a number of horses out of their stables. In the following chaos one horse died and several sustained injuries as they ran free in the unfenced area surrounding the race course. Some horses were allegedly attacked with sharp objects. The workers say they were acting in solidarity with a colleague who was dismissed in February for allegedly stabbing a horse and the subsequent UIF related issues.
