THE WEATHER IS COOLER. MOST FOLKS THINK CARRIAGE ANIMALS ARE OKAY. THINK AGAIN.
Consider: Pulling the heaviest loads in the U.S. Charleston is swamped with tourists who believe
(wrongly) that this charming antebellum City would never allow animals to be abused for the
sake of tourism (wrong). Long hours and heavy loads will be carriage horses’ life for the holiday
season in a City that cares mostly about tourist dollars.
Looks like a new fleet of carriage horses have arrived in time for the holidays. Wonder what
happened to the tired horses of summer? Think they are at some bucolic pasture resting?
Mmmmmmm……Think again. Think auctions where the fate of these animals rests with buyers
of all sorts…many of whom are “meat buyers” buying horses to be shipped to Mexico for
horrifically cruel deaths in slaughterhouses.
Our “Day of Action” scheduled for April is forming. We have a committee working on a protest
march, calling out the Mayor and City Council to address their cruel ordinance, encouraging the
entire Charleston citizenry to show their outrage at this outdated and we think, inhumane
tourist entertainment. If you would like to join us in planning this event, let us know. It will take
all of us to make for a successful event and the follow-up to force elected officials to be
convinced that it’s time to move to humane entertainment.
