A fortnight ago, a horrific incident left two carriage-horses on the bitumen in Melbourne CBD.
We talk to Kristin Leigh, the Campaign Manager for Melbourne Against Horse-Drawn Carriages.
Past incidents include horses colliding with a tram, horses collapsing, horses bolting and throwing the driver from the carriage and a distressing delay in transporting an injured horse from the CBD.
It is unknown if any of these horses received veterinary care.
Join the global movement to ban horse-drawn carriages in modern-day cities by signing the petition to ban horse-drawn carriages in Melbourne.
