Unfortunately, PETA has reported another New York City horse used to pull carriages throughout the Big Apple has died.

On Sunday morning, the horse collapsed in the middle of street while on its way to Central Park.

‘Glee’ starlet Lea Michele is strongly against horse drawn carriages and tweeted her reaction to the horse’s death. “Just woke up to the saddest news about one of the carriage horses dying the midtown NYC. This has to stop! Please:(.”

She then tweeted, “Trying to move past the sad news from this morning.. Getting ready now to do some press for #Glee.. Super busy day today!”

PETA also responded through Twitter and posted the following tweet, “Another horse used 2 pull carriages in NYC is dead. WATCH @msleamichele‘s vid about the miserable lives of these horses http://ht.ly/77kqH.”

A spokeswoman for PETA and horses, Michele recorded a video about the lives of these horses, who haul heavy loads through the busy city, even during harsh weather. The video is posted below, so be sure to watch!

According to The New York Dail News, an investigation is being sought after by the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages, while the ASPCA will perform an autospy to determine the cause of death.
