ARAs in Israel Call for Horse-Drawn Cart Ban

July 8, 2012

In a letter sent to Minister of Transportation Israel Katz on Wednesday morning, animal rights organization Hakol Chai asked the minister to take on the group's ongoing struggle against this continuing trend of peddling goods and carriages on horseback, which they said constitutes abuse to the animals. They therefore called upon Katz to revise a basic definition in the country's existing traffic ordinances, in which an animal-drawn cart is defined as a mode of transportation' and thus grants validity to a form of horse abuse, according to the group.
