The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society Legislative Fund commend the efforts to successfully prosecute individuals involved in a massive racehorse doping scandal. Seth Fishman, a veterinarian from Florida, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of two counts of conspiracy to commit drug adulteration and misbranding with the intent to defraud. The trial is part of a larger federal horse racing performance-enhancing drugs case.

Performance enhancing drugs have led to countless horse deaths and injuries throughout the years. As a licensed veterinarian, Fishman was responsible for the health and wellbeing of the horses in his care. In announcing the sentence, Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil described Fishman as motivated by greed and cited his lack of remorse up until the sentencing in handing down the sentence in the case.

The groups thank Damian Williams, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, for his office’s efforts in this case.
