Senior Adviser for Equine Protection at the Humane Society of the United States to Present at the EQUUS International Film Festival on “Equine Welfare in the U.S. – Challenges and Opportunities”

Keith Dane, senior adviser for Equine Protection at the Humane Society of the United States will present at the EQUUS International Film Festival in Missoula, Montana, on March 16, 2019. The topic of his presentation is “Equine Welfare in the U.S. – Challenges and Opportunities.”

The festival strives to increase appreciation and knowledge of the role equines play in the modern world by celebrating the film, television and multi-media artists whose works focus on the species. Despite the strong human-equine bond that many people experience, the welfare of domestic and wild horses and burros is still challenged by problems such as the slaughter of America’s equines and abuses in equestrian sport and racing. Dane will explore these problems and discuss potential solutions.
