Cruelty is Cruely in Italy Too
The internet has been filled with messages this summer about the suffering of the horses pulling carriages and tourists in brutally hot weather in Italy. Animal protectionists here and in other countries are offering support. The horse-drawn carriage has already been banned in other big cities all over the world. It is more than obvious that people who care about the welfare and happiness of animals everywhere realize that the horse-drawn carriage trade is cruel. What is it going to take for New Yorkers to shut it down in our great city? Another hideous death of one of these incredible and beautiful but defenseless creatures?
