Carriage Horses

Some of you may remember a few months back when I joined local activists Friends of Animals to protest the horse-drawn carriages in downtown Victoria. Sadly, one of the horses collapsed on Government Street yesterday (a very busy street in downtown Victoria).A-Channel did a brief news story about the horse and thank Tofu he was ok ... but we have to get these horses off the streets and onto a sanctuary where they can live out the rest of their life in a safe environment with dignity.



If you would like to see horse drawn carriages banned from the streets of Victoria a quick letter to Victoria City Hall (councillors@victoria.ca) and the James Bay Association (jamesbayna@yahoo.ca) would be very helpful. We are a tourist town and if tourists (no matter where you live) write in to complain it can make a big difference.

... . If you'd like to share the letter you sent and any response you may receive please send it to dave@friendsofanimals.org
