Animal rights activists will be joining CAPS to demand that this type of animal cruelty not be allowed in Lancaster.

“This is 2011, not 1911 and we do not use animals as beasts of burden in the civilized world. Has the City of Lancaster forgotten that we had an industrial revolution? London, Paris, Beijing, Toronto, Santa Fe, Key West and Las Vegas have all banned this cruel industry. This form of  so-called entertainment is exploitative and humane standards of care are impossible to enforce. The average working life of a carriage horse on the streets is under four years compared to a police horse whose working life is about 14 years. The animal protection community will not tolerate this form of abuse and Lancaster can expect an effective protest campaign in their city to put a stop to it if we have to.” ---Carole Raphaelle Davis, West coast Director, Companion Animal Protection Society
