Ban Cruel Horse Carts

Sign Here

Sponsored by: PETA

If the summer heat has left you hot, tired and sweaty, just imagine what it's like for horses who are forced to pull carts on the crowded streets of Mumbai in the sweltering heat. These horses live a miserable life. They must dodge cars, taxis and bicycles, and it is not unusual for horses to suffer from untreated injuries. Most horses never see a veterinarian in their lifetime.

In a letter to Mumbai's Office of the Collector, actor John Abraham points out that horses who are used to haul heavy loads are worked far past the point of exhaustion. When they are too worn out to continue, horses often collapse and are repeatedly whipped in an effort to get them back on their feet. Horses are overloaded far beyond the legal limit, and they are frequently denied adequate rest, food and water.

When food and water are provided at all, PETA investigators have often found that the feed is unwholesome and that the drinking water is dirty. Stables are often damp, filthy, and filled with flies and other biting insects. Many horses are left to stand without shade amid their own faeces and urine.

You Can Help
This cruel industry must be banned. Please join John by asking the Office of the Collector to ban the use of horses for pulling victorias, tongas and carts in Mumbai.
