‘Horses’ to Blast Budweiser Clydesdale Mutilations at Chevy Chase Inn 90th Anniversary

For Immediate Release:

Lexington, Ky. – On Wednesday, ahead of an appearance of the Budweiser Clydesdales at the historic Chevy Chase Inn’s 90th anniversary celebration kick-off, a herd of PETA supporters wearing giant realistic horse masks will converge outside the bar bearing signs that proclaim, “Budweiser Has Blood on Its Cans!”—urging the King of Tears to end its painful and unnecessary amputations of Clydesdales’ tailbones.

As PETA revealed in a recent video exposé, Budweiser has been secretly severing the Clydesdales’ tailbones or painfully cutting off the blood supply with a tight band, eventually causing it to die and fall off—all so the horses will look a certain way when hitched to a beer wagon. Cosmetic tailbone amputation is condemned by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Association of Equine Practitioners and is illegal in 10 states and several countries, including Belgium, where Budweiser’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch InBev, is based.

“Horses need their tails for balance and to protect themselves against biting and disease-spreading insects,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “Until the company stops disfiguring Clydesdales, PETA is calling on everyone to pass on the Bud and enjoy a smooth Maker’s on the rocks instead.”

Where:           Outside Chevy Chase Inn, 833 Euclid Ave. near the High St. intersection, Lexington

When:             Wednesday, May 31, 5 p.m.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
