No. But we know what will.
We are not banking on what happened to a carriage horse recently in NYC bringing an end to the trade — and all the misery, abuse and mayhem that goes with it. It is just another “final straw” in a trail of so many final straws.
Can no one actually help these horses? Heaven knows advocates in NYC and across the country have worked long and hard on this.
Here is a solution that has been a long time in development and in the making. Give tourists an alternative that will free the horses.
Here is the e-carriage we have long been watching and waiting for? Look.
PeTA writes: “In June 2021, a truck struck a horse-drawn carriage with multiple passengers, causing the frightened horse pulling it to take off running. Two people were taken to the hospital. In July 2020, a horse pulling a carriage sustained serious injuries after he took off running, and he was subsequently euthanized. In 2019, two horses pulling a carriage took off and damaged several cars. One passenger jumped out of the carriage. Clearly, an e-carriage in Charleston can’t come soon enough, and it’s time for other businesses offering tourist rides to follow suit.”
Congratulations and thank you one and all.
