Ban Maltese "Karrozin"

This petition had 13,400 supporters

Dear Dr. Muscat,

I cannot express strongly enough the helpless feeling that a large number of Maltese citizens feel in relation to the health and safety of horses who have  been unlucky enough to be 'chosen' for a life of servitude and pain.

We all know the heat and sunshine our beautiful island is blessed with, well blessed for some who can control how they manage the heat.

Our Maltese horses who are still in this day and age used as a means of transport suffer immensely. They suffer from heat stress as it is, due to their physiognomy, without the additional weight of the carriage and some 240 - 320 kgs of human weight!

I've seen another petition for this cause that was openend and then closed really quickly as it started to collect votes. I can only 'guess' why this happened and I will not be threatened to shut down a cause which so deperately needs some attention.

I will aim to gather 10,000 votes to bring this to your attention and I am confident that there are others who feel strongly and will support this.

You are a prime minister who has proven to listen to your people, and I am hopeful and confident that this will be the case in this instance also.

Your sincerely,

The Maltese Public
