Horses Spook, Chapter II (Brixton)

The horse got spooked, the coffin got dragged, mourners were mortified.

During a funeral procession in the UK (Brixton, London), the funeral car had pulled in sharply ahead of the horse-drawn carriage; this may have caused one of the horses to bolt. The groomswoman was thrown from the carriage and was reported to have suffered a broken arm.

Again, how is it a good idea to have horses working in New York City traffic? Support Intro. 658 (the measure introduced by Councilman Tony Avella) to ban horse-drawn carriages in NYC.

New York City residents, your help is urgently needed! Ask your City Council representative to support Intro. 658 (and to oppose industry bills Intro. 652 and Intro. 653). Find your council member - click here
