NYC Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio Planning to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages

More horses will be sent to slaughter when animal rights activists get their way


Horse-drawn carriages could soon be a thing of the past in New York City's Central Park after Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio announced plans to outlaw the popular tourist attraction once in office.

"We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period," de Blasio said at a news conference Monday, saying that the practice is inhumane.
