Ban Horse Carriages in NYC

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • target: NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, NY Congresswoman Caroyln Maloney, NY Senator Charles Schumer, NY Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Governor of New York State Andrew M. Cuomo

A carriage horse keeled over and died in midtown Sunday morning, October 23.The stout white equine collapsed on W. 54th St. near Eighth Ave. as it trotted toward Central Park to begin its shift about 9:30 a.m., said Stacy Wolf, chief legal counsel of the ASPCA's enforcement unit.

Earlier this year, State Senator Tony Avella and Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal called for a ban of horse-drawn carriages, saying the industry is antiquated and barbaric.


We ask that you ban horse drawn carriages once and for all. Profits are never more important than human beings acting humanely. These horses never even have the chance to graze on grass naturally and are constanly exposed to noise pollution. If stress can kill a human, it can kill a horse. Make this inhumane industry illegal.
