THE END OF CARRIAGE HORSES?
Carriages and their horses are seen in the Central Park area in New York on Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Mayor-elect Bill De Blasio reiterated his position on dismantling the industry and working with the drivers to replace them with electric-powered "antique" automobiles. Animal rights groups have been lobbying for the end of carriage horses for years claiming that they are inhumane. (© Ricard B. Levine)
