more about what the horses lives are like when they're on the track. and i started to understand why horses would come to me and they would be headshot the entire industry itself has scrapped and there's no way for it to be humane. she along with several dozen activists urge albany city council members in a meeting monday night. >> to use whatever power they have to put an end to what they say is an outdated cruel sport that leads to abuse of the horses and feeds into gambling addictions in their town council members were also asked by callers, including one of the 4 activists who recently protested in the middle of the field to publicly speak out against the racetrack and a lawsuit launched against them. other callers said they'd like to see the waterfront site serve other needs like housing. well, some council members expressed compassion and scrutiny over the deaths. they seem we feel their hands at the local level are tied albany city council member rochelle nice and tells kron 4 like many in our community. i view horse racing in its current form is excessively dangerous to the horses
involved. she went on to say, however, i believe the california law places the responsibility for regulating this activity on the state rather than the local government and council member aaron tiedemann said i'm very saddened to hear that there have been more horse deaths at the track. i'm hopeful that we will see action from the state on golden gate fields soon. as i think our community is ready to see our shoreline used for something more constructive than horse racing representatives of golden gate fields did not get back to us. >> meantime, activists point to dog racing as being outlawed across the country and they are waiting to see the same happen now with course racing. they're telling council members of al bunny. they can lead the rest of the way for the state and the nation. back to you. >> we'll be right back after the break.
