Re: “Letter: Carriage horses can take the heat

Humans have a choice in the kind of work they choose and a horse doesn't. How about those carriage owners invest in more human powered transpiration methods to haul the fat ass tourist around. I bring my family to Charleston every year for vacation, and am disgusted when I see those poor horses pulling people around in the heat. They look miserable and I don't think they look healthy. I have always refused to partake in a carriage ride and have taught my son that it is cruelty.

You folks that don't have empathy for animals will pay the ultimate price some day. Karma is real.
I love Charleston and think it is an awesome place to visit. But every year I dread having to see those poor horses. It makes me sick. I avoid the downtown area on our trips and would spend more time walking around down there if the horses went away.

I am a tourist. I don't like the carragies. I don't think I'm in the minority. We have evolved too much to let this cruelty play out on our American streets.
