HORSES NOT FIT FOR EXTREME WEATHER

METRO - July 20, 2007

Regarding "PETA wants horses off city streets." (7/12) In this great city, in the 21st century, do we really need animals hauling us around for entertainment? We ought to be ashamed for allowing the horse-drawn carriage industry to thrive at the expense of suffering animals.

How many folks have stood in the fierce cold or desert-like heat for 10 hours at a time and thought it bearable? It is not bearable for horse or human - and we ought to hang our heads in horror that it has been permitted and even encouraged.
