NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Mayor Bill de Blasio has promised to send the controversial horse carriages running for the hills, but an effort in Albany may stall that plan.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, New York State Assemblyman Gary Pretlow (D-Westchester) is planning to introduce two pieces legislation on Monday to save the horse carriage industry.
“The horses are bred to do work. These are work horses and this is their job. And they’re performing their job and from what I’ve seen, these particular horses that we’re referring to have been performing their job with joy in their hearts,” Pretlow, of Mount Vernon, told CBS 2’s Sonia Rincon.
