New York City Carriage Horses - 3 Mar 2006

Although we rarely visit New York City, for years we have been aware of the awful plight of carriage horses in the congested streets of this metropolis.

I urge everyone to visit this website of the Coalition for New York City Animals:

Please read “Why a Ban Is Necessary” at:

The problem goes beyond the inhumanity of this awful business:

“…there is also the pervasive smell of horse feces and urine that permeates Central Park South.”

“People who live on Central Park South have complained about this smell for years. Those who object cannot open their windows in nice weather. In one community close to the stable on 45th, public school children complained of health problems.”

This unnecessary, unsanitary, cruel trade must stop.
 


"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
