NY Carriage Horse Bill

A New York City council member has agreed to sponsor a bill to protect carriage horses from kill auctions.

Following a petition that received nearly 3,000 signatures on, NYC Council Member Daniel Dromm has agreed to introduce a bill that would protect New York City’s carriage horses from kill auctions. Titled “Bobby’s Bill,” named after a carriage horse who was “retired” into a kill auction, the bill would guarantee that carriage horses live the remainder of their lives at an animal sanctuary or with an individual who signs an assurance that the horse will be kept as a companion animal. Earlier this year, Glee star and vegan Lea Michele called for a boycott of horse-drawn carriages, lamenting the animals’ poor work conditions and long hours.
