Veteran actress Anjelica Huston is speaking out against the use of horse-drawn carriages in New York City, joining celebrities such as Lea Michele and Pamela Anderson, both of whom are outspoken advocates of banning the cruel practice. Troubled by the horse-carriage industry’s potential dangers and lack of regulation, Huston is reaching out to local officials to ask for their support for Intro 86A, a bill that would replace horse-drawn carriages with eco-friendly vintage-replica cars. In a letter to City Councilwoman Christine Quinn, the actress writes, “It’s surprising to me that a city known for its progressive spirit still allows this cruel and dangerous tourist trap.”
