Horse Drawn Carriages

Berlin has problems too

Under the headline "First Step Against Animal Suffering", these letters appeared in the Berlin Zeitung in response to the newspaper's coverage of the carriage horse issue. September 2008. They were translated to English by a German friend.

First Step Against the Suffering of Animals

Readers are pleased that Berlin wants to help horse carriages with Law. Very good article over the right path for the Horse carriages. This is the first step against the suffering of carriage horses. We will ask Klaus Wowereit (mayor of Berlin) to include the animal rights organization in the law regulations, like the federal government does as well. We hope for a tightening of the regulations, that makes it economical non-profitable for the coachmen to make their horses drudge.

Thank you for the coverage.

Abolition is Better Good Article! You are one of the few newspapers campaigning for the well-being of the poor carriage horses. A regulation would be very desirable, an abolition even better! Please cover the progress. I am hoping for a carriage -free Berlin.

The sufferers in a Large City I don't find that coach horses must be in Berlin, the animals are suffering under the ecological influences of the Metropolis. They also place a great danger to other forms of traffic.

P. Rude, per mail

Incomplete Protection It is distressing that there are no ordinances given to the carriage horses. But man should not overlook, that even if there was ordinances given, the horses would still be exposed to the ecological and weather conditions. Many animals end up at the butcher when they are no longer needed and can't pull the weight of the carriages any longer. Therefore I will wish for a general Carriage prohibition in Berlin!
