Queens Councilman Calls For An End To Carriage Horse Rides

As reported on NY1 TV New York, December 8, 2007:

Tourists looking for a horse and buggy ride in Central Park could be stuck walking if a Queens lawmaker has his way.

City Councilman Tony Avella is set to introduce a bill next week that would ban the carriage rides.

He says the horses are victims of animal cruelty and risk injuries and even death in city traffic.

This all comes after a carriage horse died in September after being spooked by musicians on Central Park South.

It's unclear how much support Avella's measure has in the council. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said the horses are cared for and should remain a city fixture, and New York's Horse and Carriage Association says their 220 horse fleet is in excellent health.
