Report all carriage accidents
Call the BCSPCA to report all carriage incidents: 1 (855) 6BC SPCA /(1-855-622-7722)
Did you witness a horse-carriage incident in the city or in your neighborhood? We would like to share your story or any pictures you have with the community to help raise awareness of the danger and unpredictability of this inhumane business. Send them to us and we will do our best to get them out to the public and right people.
Please email the BC SPCA and let them know you don’t support horse-drawn carriages and that you hope they don’t either! Tell them to make a specific position statement on the issue, and that guidelines of care are not enough.
Tell the mayor and council that horse-drawn carriages do not belong in the city streets or anywhere else. Also, tell them that the B.C. SPCA’s guidelines are not enough and don’t address the unnatural environment the horses must work in.
The Downtown Victoria Business Association traditionally pays for free horse-drawn trolley rides through downtown Victoria during the holiday season. Let them know you don’t support them paying to put horses and the citizens in danger on city streets!
For the past several years UVic Food Services department hosts a visit from “Santa” in a horse carriage. There is no reason to exploit horses for this kind of cheesy entertainment when Santa could easily be presented somewhere else on campus without this ride. Please tell them you don’t support the exploitation of other animals for entertainment.
