Last night, Alec Baldwin hosted an event for PETA in NYC to address the cruelty of the horse-drawn carriage scene. Shown at the event was the new documentary Blinders, which provides a look at the “living hell” horses endure. From the article,

“Forced to spend their days breathing in exhaust fumes, walking on hard pavement, and risking their lives because of weather extremes and idiotic NYC drivers that somehow passed their driver’s tests, these horses are prevented from doing anything that is natural and important to them. Moss began to record the daily lives and living conditions of horses pulling carriages in and around Central Park after noticing the onslaught of recent injuries to horses in the carriage industry.”

Alec Baldwin insists he’s not interested in banning the trade, but he’d be willing to donate some good cash if the city would guarantee improved living conditions for the animals. “I don’t have a problem with the carriage trade. If they remove all the cars in Manhattan, and build a farm with an acre of land for each horse to graze, I will invest my own money. Passions run high in this issue… It’s loud and vulgar because they know they are wrong.”

That acre of land might be tough – but removing cars from Manhattan? No problem. Get that check ready, Alec.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
