In the latest horse-drawn carriage death, a horse named Ervin was euthanized after he ran through the streets of Charleston while pulling an empty carriage and injuring his legs.

Forcing a skittish animal to pull an oversized carriage, breathe toxic exhaust fumes, and risk serious leg injuries by pounding the pavement all day is a recipe for disaster. Horses in Charleston have tipped over a carriage, wandered loose through the streets, and crashed into cars.

Research shows that horses display some of the same complex and fluid social organization that humans do. Forcing them to give rides is a form of speciesism—a human-supremacist worldview.

Please politely urge Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg to ban horse-drawn carriages, as numerous cities—including Breckenridge, Colorado; Chicago; Palm Beach, Florida; and Salt Lake City—have already done.
