In a letter to the editor of the St. Augustine Record, Eva Bromberek described a recent visit to the historic city: “We were going into a restaurant when I saw a horse that looked like it was in such bad condition. A van was behind the carriage honking at it, practically pushing it. It ruined my whole night,” Eva wrote. She also mentioned a hit-and-run recent accident (Dec. 8, 2007) in which a car rear-ended a horse-drawn carriage in St. Augustine and noted, “Through the years I have seen St. Augustine traffic get progressively worse, and the horses seem to be in more danger than ever before.” Eva wrote that while she has always enjoyed her visits to St. Augustine, she may not return. "I have almost reached the point that I have to make decisions about how much heart-wrenching animal suffering I can bear to watch on the streets of St. Augustine,” she wrote.
Time to get the horses off the streets. Enough is enough.
