Spooked horse

We had another horse carriage incident this weekend, you can read about it HERE. It was only a few weeks ago that this incident happened.

The carriages are seen by the public as romantic and as a quaint nod to the past, but these poor animals live their lives mouth to tail-pipe and it's an awful way to spend your day.

I've posted this information before but with this new incident I believe that another wave of letter writing would really help. If you would like to see horse drawn carriages banned from the streets of Victoria please write a quick letter to Victoria City Hall ( and the James Bay Association ( 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

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.
