Speak Up for Mumbai Horses
PETA's investigations of horses used to haul carriages in Mumbai have revealed that the horses are fed unwholesome food and dirty drinking water – when they receive any nourishment at all. Stables are unlicensed and filthy, and they're infested with flies and other biting insects attracted by the animals' waste, posing a threat to human health. Horses are forced to work and stand for hours in the blazing sun without any shade. The horses can often be found hobbling on swollen limbs, with injuries and untreated festering wounds.Horse collapses are an all-too-common occurrence among horses who are used for "joy rides" in the city. And since horses and cars don't mix, they are often involved in traffic accidents.Bollywood celebrities such as Hema Malini, John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zeenat Aman, Arjun Rampal and others have joined hands with PETA to help put an end to the suffering of horses in Mumbai by demanding that horse-drawn carriages be banned immediately.
