Another horse down … :(

The Victoria Vegan just blogged that another Carriage Horse went down in an accident on Dallas Road. 🙁


You can also read about it in our local paper HERE.

The carriages are seen by the public as romantic and as a quaint nod to the past, but these poor animals live their lives mouth to tail-pipe and it’s an awful way to spend your day.

I’ve posted this information before but with this new incident I believe that another wave of letter writing would really help. We are a tourist town and if tourists (no matter where you live) write in to complain can make a big difference.

If you would like to see horse drawn carriages banned from the streets of Victoria please write a quick letter to Victoria City Hall (councillors@victoria.ca) and the James Bay Association( jbna@vcn.bc.ca).

If you’d like to share the letter you sent and any response you may receive please send it to dave@friendsofanimals.org

We have to get these horses off the streets and onto a sanctuary where they can live out the rest of their life in a safe environment with dignity.
