A NEW YORK TRAGEDY

horse.jpgYet another carriage horse tragedy unfolds as Smoothie, a gentle, affectionate, 13 year old mare lies dead on the streets of Manhattan,   spooked by the cacophony of the city! 

Thankfully her end was swift, albeit frightening and painful. Less urbane and sophisticated cities in Europe have realized the callous inhumanity associated with equines forced to work in aberrant temperature ambiance and other unnatural circumstances and have banned this outrageous “tourist” attraction and cruel commerce.

Obviously, New York and Mayor Mike chose not to lead by good example. Carolyn Daly, a spokeswoman for the Horse and Carriage Association comments on the horses and the drivers:  These aren’t just horses, these are their family.” Well, I sure as hell would hate to be a “voiceless” member of their family. Exploitation of these magnificent creatures has been a blemish on the face of our city for far too many years. What will it take for the    political powers that be and the ASPCA to put an end to this repelling practice. . . the death of a child?  Enough is enough.
