Elizabeth Forel notified us of two pending active Change.org Petitions concerning carriage horses. Please sign them today, right now while you are thinking about it.
As you can see, this is not a New York City problem. It is a problem in many towns and cities across America.
1. CHARLESTON, S. CAROLINA
Stand up for the long exploited horses in Charleston, South Carolina.
The city of Charleston allows horse-drawn carriage wagons to pull 17 people in 98 degree temperatures with very high humidity. It is an obscene image.
The City refuses to do anything about it and as long as you spend your tourism dollars in Charleston they will do nothing. Please speak out and sign this petition to boycott Charleston for as long as this continues.
2. HILLSBOROUGH, N. CAROLINA
Stand up for the equally exploited horses of Charleston, South Carolina.
We hope you are willing to take a few minutes out of your busy day to lend a voice to these horses.
Please don’t think you don’t need to because a lot of other people are probably doing it.
We know the horses can count on you!
