The Cost of Tourism II

This time the victim is a carriage horse.

On February 28th, 2017, I saw very disturbing images of an exhausted carriage horse collapsed, in Central Park NY. That image haunted me to the extent that I have NEVER driven through Palm Beach at night, for fear of witnessing a similar disaster here, with the ridiculously commercial rides, leaving Paseo Herencia down the dark, congested, Palm Beach road.

I just knew it was coming.

It came the night before last. One of those small horses they use to pull the old-style carriages down the traffic-choked road expired in front of the RIU.

I don’t want to know the details. I can only imagine how stressful it was for our visitors.

By the way, I never saw it mentioned in the media, like it never happened.  

I say, ban those rides.

I am starting a one-person anti-carriage protest group, but I am not alone.

Don’t you agree: Horses do not belong at night on that charmless track, they should be resting in their stables.  

We can’t allow working those creature to death — rides in the cunucu by day and Palm Beach at night – that’s cruelty to animals.

Show your support of Animal Rights by saying NO to that kind of exploitation.

And enough. Get those horses off the road.
