Coalition to Ban Horse Drawn Carriages
Activists hit Times Square to distribute information to tourists explaining why they believe horse-drawn carriages should be outlawed in New York City, WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola reported.
The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages held a demonstration Saturday afternoon at the corner of Central Park South and Fifth Avenue. But a horse-drawn carriage driver said accidents are rare and called the protest alarmist.
A white horse collapsed and died Sunday around 9:30 a.m. as it trotted toward Central Park, according to the ASPCA.
