Group Points out The Horses Have No Places on Busy City Streets: Asks to Have Carriage Horses Banned from Central Par

Of course Bloomberg won’t act upon this, but it serves to educate people as to the unnatural and dangerous nature of having horses on busy city streets. MANY horses have died doing this unnatural work. For more information on carriage horses including a list of injuries and deaths to carriage horses see http://www.equineadvocates.com/carriage.html

The article points out the following points:

“The protest follows the death last week of a horse named Juliet, who had pulled horses through the park for 17 years. She collapsed and tests are being conducted to establish the reason, although the owner has reportedly said that colic is the most likely cause.

Juliet is the second horse to have died this year, the first death occurring in January when a horse spooked and ran into traffic.”

Animal rights group protests over carriage horses

September 24, 2006

Protesters have demonstrated outside New York's City Hall in a bid to have carriage horses banned from Central Park.

They argue that allowing horses to operate amid the fumes and traffic is cruel.

The protest follows the death last week of a horse named Juliet, who had pulled horses through the park for 17 years. She collapsed and tests are being conducted to establish the reason, although the owner has reportedly said that colic is the most likely cause.

The protest, organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), drew several dozen people.

Juliet is the second horse to have died this year, the first death occurring in January when a horse spooked and ran into traffic.

The protests seem unlikely to succeed, with the New York mayor Michael Bloomberg already on record in support of them.

Animal welfare agencies have already checked the operations and found nothing amiss.
