Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages in Chicago

Collapsing while pulling carriages during summer heat waves, being forced to stand stationary in the sub-freezing, bitter cold while awaiting the next fare, being tethered to a carriage while being forced to inhale the exhaust fumes of the automobile just inches in front of them - Carriage horses are overworked in the harshest weather and most polluted conditions. 

There is nothing charming about this.

Built for soft ground and pastures, these horses are suffering from early lameness, respiratory disease, heat prostration and spooking (which can lead to accidents and injury).

Many cities in the United States and around the world have already banned the use of carriage horses. And as New York City is on the verge of banning this awful practice, it's about time leaders in the city of Chicago get on board too. Let's demonstrate our compassion by supporting the ban of horse-drawn carriages in our city. Cruelty to animals does not belong in the streets of Chicago

      We had many signers before we actually finished. Now that it is finished, it would be great if all the early signers now shared this on Facebook or with friends! Thanks, everyone.
