Herd of PETA ‘Horses’ to Call Out Clydesdale Mutilations at Budweiser Brewery

For Immediate Release:
February 13, 2023

St. Louis. Mo. – Wearing realistic horse masks and “bloody” tails and holding aloft a giant can of beer emblazoned with the message “Budweiser Has Blood on Its Cans,” PETA supporters will descend on the Anheuser-Busch brewery on Wednesday to challenge the company to stop mutilating the “World-Famous Budweiser Clydesdales.” As recently revealed in PETA’s video exposé, Budweiser severs the horses’ tailbones or painfully cuts off the blood supply to the tail with a tight band, eventually causing it to die and fall off—all so the Clydesdales will look a certain way when hitched to the beer wagon.

When:    Wednesday, February 15, 12 noon

Where:    Budweiser Brewery Experience, 1200 Lynch St. (at the intersection with S. 12th Street), St. Louis

“Horses need their tails, and cutting them off causes immense pain, affects their balance, and removes their first line of defense against biting and disease-spreading insects,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “Budweiser is the King of Tears for disfiguring the Clydesdales, and PETA is calling on the company to let these horses keep the tails nature gave them.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
