Cindy Gagne, Mayor of Omak
2 North Ash Street
PO Box 72
Omak, WA 98841
Dear Mayor Gagne:
I am writing to you regarding the Omak Suicide Horse Race. This event of the Omak Stampede is surely a business draw for your
community. Sadly, however, the money and entertainment value come from cruelty and inhumane exploitation of horses.
Pitbull fighting has been banned from all 50 states due to the inhumane and gruesome exploitation of dogs. The Suicide Race is much
like the pitbull fighting in its cruel use of horses.
I urge you to be a leader and change your communitys direction. Many people are learning about this gore-seeking, pointless event
called the Suicide Race. Your community will be under scrutiny and will have to answer the question: why sponsor an event that
brings out the cruel, thrill-seeking, ugly side of humanity? This Suicide Race, by name, is selling death for thrills; this is NOT
an American value nor a Native American value.
Please consider ways to transition your community away from the distorted and shameful focus on gore and cruelty that is the Suicide
Race to truly honorable and respectable FAMILY entertainment. There are other options for drawing business to your community.
Thank you for your consideration, and I would appreciate a response.

It has come to my attention that PepsiCo, Inc., is a sponsor of the Omak Suicide Race and Stampede held in Omak, Washington; perhaps
you were unaware, but this is an inherently cruel event that has caused the death of 20 horses and injuries to dozens more. As such,
I respectfully request that Pepsi severe any relationship it has with this violent "attraction".
Please allow me to elaborate. Horses are ridden at high speed to a steep drop, unable to see ahead or to prepare for what they
encounter. At a 62-degree angle, the almost-vertical 225-foot drop leads to the deep, rushing, dangerous waters of the Okanogan
River. Following the crossing of the river, any horses who have not been immobilized, seriously injured, or killed are pushed to run
up another steep incline. (paws.org)
This description cannot adequately illustrate the dangerous conditions to which the horses are subjected. Furthermore, it most
certainly lacks the ability to describe the terror felt by these sentient beings, forced to endure unquestionably fearful conditions
at high speeds; this is the epitome of suffering and exploitation unnecessarily caused by humans for trivial entertainment.
Surely Pepsi would want to choose the responsible, compassionate decision to discontinue sponsoring this event, and you may be
interested to know that both Wal-Mart and Crown Royal have already decided to end their sponsorship of this cruelty. Indeed, Pepsi
should be concerned with what message it is portraying when it sponsors animal cruelty; one would expect Pepsi would be unwilling to
participate in any effort that causes such harm to sentient beings. Furthermore, consumers of Pepsi would be shocked to learn that
Pepsi sponsors such animal abuse and would promote a Pepsi boycott as the result of such.
Please establish Pepsi as a company unwilling to support animal cruelty and cease your sponsorship of the Omak Suicide Race and
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
