shhhhh... Horses at Work

"Trying to limit noise that may startle horses on the margins of the park is like trying to stop birds from singing in the hinterlands. It's folly."
Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, supports Intro. 658 that would ban horse-drawn carriages in New York City
Read "Big Apple Bustle No Place for Horses" (Wayne's blog, Sept. 2007)
Read "Investigating the Death of Smoothie" (New York Times/City Room, Sept. 17, 2007). Smoothie, the carriage horse that darted onto the sidewalk, was spooked by a drumming sound.
Read "What Are the NY Authorities Waiting For?" from the Toronto Humane Society, another vigorous advocate of a ban horse-drawn carriages
