Debbie Harry Speaks Out for Blondie the Carriage Horse

Fierce frontwoman of the new wave rock band, Blondie, Debbie Harry is speaking out for a different Blondie: a carriage horse in NYC.

Blondie the horse was forced to work on New York City streets for four days with a painful (and potentially lethal) hoof disease. Her driver was charged with animal cruelty after police noticed Blondie limping. The driver’s court case is next month.

Harry wrote a letter to the New York City Council members, urging them to heed Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to get these gentle horses off of Manhattan’s chaotic streets. In the letter, she points out that Blondie came from Clinton Park Stables, which are the same stable that actor Liam Neeson vouches for as being “humane.”

“The carriage trade has shown repeatedly that it won’t abide by the few regulations that are intended to protect these animals and the public,” Harry wrote. “Blondie’s case and its many implications show why I and so many other people support Mayor Bill de Blasio’s efforts to get these overworked horses off the streets and retire them to sanctuaries.”

One way or another, we’re gonna get those horses off the streets!

    With a painful (and potentially lethal) hoof disease….as usual Animal activists trying to capitalize on next to nothing . Try learning before commenting:
    Thrush is what the horse had and is not lethal in fact its very common, and the horse can work while under treatment. I am not a vet, in case you comment, but you only need to look it up.

    …Debra Harry you don’t need book knowledge to write a song but you do to care for a horse.

Verbally abusing your vegan friends isn’t edgy, it’s just being a bully

If you’re a vegan who has had to deal with this, and especially if you come from a background of being abused in other ways, you are absolutely not alone
