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 (email@example.com) and the James Bay Association( firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you’d like to share the letter you sent and any response you may receive please send it to email@example.com
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.
