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. If you would like to see horse drawn carriages banned from the streets of Victoria please write a quick letter to Victoria City Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the James Bay Association (email@example.com). We are a tourist town and if tourists (no matter where you live) write in to complain it can make a big difference.
… If you’d like to share the letter you sent and any response you may receive please send it to firstname.lastname@example.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.
