Media Statement: Horse-drawn carriage accidents in South Carolina and New York

For Immediate Release:
April 24, 2014

In just the past two weeks, PETA has tracked carriage-horse accidents that have injured passengers, including nine children, in California, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, adding to the dozens of spooked-horse accidents in New York over the past few years. Cars don’t get spooked, but horses do, which is why PETA is cheering on mayors nationwide to modernize their cities.
