It is unclear where the horse was coming from, and the NYPD has yet to release details on his capture. The Dodo is waiting on more information from the NYPD. The animal was seen in Hell's Kitchen near both the West Side Livery, on 38th Street, and Byrne Stables, on 37th Street, according to NYCLASS.
The incident may seem bizarre, but it's not the first unusual occurrence that has happened in New York lately. In fact, over the past two years, over 20 accidents have occurred in the city - and those are just the known accidents reported by the public. These and other issues associated with the industry have led to widespread protests against New York's carriage horses in recent months.
"This is the latest example of why horse drawn carriages are not just inhumane but entirely unsafe in a city congested with cars, trucks and buses," Allie Feldman, Executive Director of NYCLASS, told The Dodo. "It's time for the City Council to act and get the carriage horses off the streets of New York City."
