The ads, which display harrowing footage of recent gut-wrenching horse incidents on NYC streets show exactly why it is absolute madness that horses are still pulling carriages through the streets of midtown Manhattan. It’s 2021, not 1821. It’s long overdue for city leaders to ban carriage horses and end this abuse once and for all, as most other large cities have already done.
TAKE ACTION by calling or emailing NYC Council and asking them to fast-track legislation to BAN cruel and deadly horse carriages! Find NYC Council Members here.
TV ad script narrated by Edie Falco:
"New York is back – and so is the abuse of carriage horses.
Please don’t look away.
Why are horses still pulling carriages in traffic?
Sick and injured, worked to death, violent crashes…
These animals feel pain, they feel terror, they bleed just like we do.
This is Edie Falco asking you to please take action.
Call your NYC Council Member: tell them to ban carriage horses in 2021."
