C.M. Maharashtra: Ban Victoria carriages, rehabilitate horses

    1. Mumbai  for horses
    2. Petition by

      Mumbai for horses

      Mumbai, India

Mumbai city, is known to have a human face. But this is at stake as the horses which pull the victorian carriages in the city are dying on the streets.

Most of these horses are ill-treated, not fed properly, live in filthy stables, often in their own stool and urine. They are made to work 18 hours a day without rest. Exhaustion forces them to collapse on the road as their owners repeatedly whip them in order to make them trot again.

Thee horses suffer from internal injuries but have never been medically treated for them. The licenses to keep these horses are not regulated, even animal rights regulations are never enforced on these carriage owners.

But we need 7000 signatures to force the Maharashtra government to rehabilitate the horses and the carriage drivers. The petition will be delivered to the following-

1) The Chief Minister of Maharashtra-
2)The Traffic police
3)The Municipal commissioner
4) The Mayor of Mumbai
