Man has proof of carriage horse collapse after driver rushed to make a green light
It was 2am on Labor Day weekend. A New York man named Paul Angheluta was outside a club when he saw a carriage driver force his horse to pace up and make a green light, only for the horse, named Norman, to collapse.
He tried to calm Norman down, who was laying on the ground and breathing hard, however, was once quickly ushered away through some men from the horse’s stables. He took a picture of the unhappy scene:
He used to be disturbed by way of the sight and called NYCLASS, who then pronounced it to the police, the health department, and the mayor. NYCLASS is an animal advocacy organization, and they help phasing out horse-drawn carriages for horseless carriages.
A spokesperson for the New York carriage industry, Christina Hansen, claimed that he used to be only worn-out and tripped himself, now not that he used to be exhausted from being overworked. She additionally claimed that he’s a “klutz,” and after tripping, laid down voluntarily.
