Click here to watch a CBS News segment that aired last night with NYCLASS Executive Director Edita Birnkrant urging Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council to use their last weeks in office to finally remove carriage horses from New York City streets!
From the interview: “We have been waiting for this a long time. For many years now, we’ve been documenting the constant neglect, abuse, cruelty, crashes in traffic, collapses, horses being worked to death,” said Edita Birnkrant of New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets. Birnkrant said there is still time for the mayor to keep his promise to retire the horses."
TAKE ACTION if you live in New York City by calling or emailing your NYC Council Member and urging them to fast-track legislation before the end of the year to get carriage horses off the streets and replace them with abuse-free electric carriages!
