The ban of horse carriages in New York City is not official yet but Mayor De Blasio has been so adamant about it that P!nk thinks we should thank him for the effort.
In a statement written by the pop star herself on the PETA website, P!nk starts by reminiscing about how five years ago she appeared on a Times Square billboard aiming to ban horse carriages, bringing some much needed attention to the topic. Now she is glad to see the city’s mayor pushing the ban and actively trying to make it happen.
“His plan to phase out the inhumane horse carriages and replace them with vintage electric cars will provide solid jobs for the current carriage drivers and loving homes for the horses,” she explains about De Blasio’s proposal. “Please join me in showing support for Mayor de Blasio and his commitment to giving the horses the peaceful retirement that they deserve.”
P!nk also mentions how she grew up around horses and plans to make sure those freed from their carriage pulling duties get to live the carefree life they were meant to have in the wild.
“When they are finally freed, I will be among the first to adopt one of these horses so that he or she can live as nature intended,” vouched the singer.
