STOP horse carriages in San Antonio NOW!

This petition had 9,180 supporters

Horses should not be working in the streets of downtown San Antonio under any circumstances. The heat in San Antonio is outrageous! Our summer months reach over 100+ degrees and the humidity even in the evening is unbearable. It is cruel to have these animals work the streets in the heat. Many are collapsing from heat strokes. Not only is it the heat but horses are dodging traffic, people, the noises and inhaling exhaust fumes. The biggest misconception is people says horses need to work, while that is only partly correct. Horses should not be pulling more than 3 times their weight. It's extremely cruel to have them drag a 1,000lb carriage with people. We should be teaching our children to treat animals with kindness, care, respect and love. We should be promoting wellness for our city by encouraging the people to spend time walking and enjoying the views without endangering God's creatures. Let's be the voice for these animals and do what's right.
