Friday, June 2, 2017. New York City – Today, NYCLASS and PETA organized a rally in front of the Westside Livery Stables in Manhattan, New York City “where a photo taken by a city inspector exposed a cramped, filthy stall that the carriage industry admits is business as usual for the horses it uses.”
Animal rights activists demand investigation into stable conditions and they also want NYC Mayor, Bill de Blasio, to ban horse-drawn carriages in NYC.

NYCLASS: Ban Horse Carriages In NYC.
“Our advocacy efforts focus on ending the inhumane, unsafe NYC carriage horse industry. We advocate for retiring the carriage horses to sanctuaries, while modernizing the current industry with a clean and safe alternative to this outdated tradition – the 21st Century Horseless Carriage. This would provide jobs for the current drivers, and much needed relief for the horses — a win-win for everyone.”
PETA: “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.”
