Resources and Information to help end animal abuse
Horse drawn carriages constitute a danger to people in vehicles, on bicycles, and on foot. They impede the flow of traffic, particularly with respect to emergency vehicles. The horses are forced to work in dangerous, unhealthy and unnatural conditions.
Major cities such as London, Paris and Toronto have all banned horse drawn carriages. It is time for other areas where these industries currently exist (such as New York City) to move into the 21st century and take seriously its moral and ethical responsibility to these sentient beings while ensuring the safety of its citizens. Surely as a civilized society, we must do no less.
