Back in 2007, Council Member Tony Avella proposed a bill to the NY City Council that would outlaw horse-drawn carriages in the city. Because the measure proved unpopular, the bill did not go through.
A similar bill was recently introduced, but the strong political influence is taking its toll. Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged to do everything in his power to stop this industry, but has managed to succced nothing until now.
Please act now and sign this petition, to show the Mayor and all the NY authorities that we, all animal lovers across the globe, are determined to shut down this industry! In the XXI century, horses have no place in the city!
