New York Carriage Horse That Died Was Forced to Work While in Pain

carriage horse dead manhattan charlie

The New York carriage horse named Charlie that collapsed and died in midtown manhattan had health problems, which should have ruled him out of a career as a city carriage horse. A preliminary necropsy of Charlie revealed that he was likely suffering from pain due to pronounced chronic ulceration of the stomach and a fractured tooth. “We are very concerned that Charlie was forced to work in spite of painful maladies,” said Dr. Pamela Corey the director of equine veterinary services for the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Charlie’s death sparked renewed calls to ban cruel horse-drawn carriages in New York, including a letter from Glee star Lea Michele asking Mayor Michael Bloomberg to support a bill to end the rides.

You can help by telling New York City lawmakers that you support Intro. Bill 86, which would ban horse-drawn carriages and replace them with eco-friendly classic cars.
