The race for the next mayor of New York City may be a historic one.
Not only for humans, but for horses, too!
Horse drawn carriages in New York City have become a big issue these days.
Animal activists say it is severe animal cruelty to have horses drawing carriages around cars in the city. Plus they say the horses are treated very poorly!
But others say that to remove carriage horses from the city will put 300 people out of a job!
One of the supporters of carriage horses is Christine C. Quinn - a top candiate to replace Michael Bloomberg as mayor of the Big Apple.
But one of her main opponents is not a supporter.
Score one for the Sharks!
The New York Senate has UNANIMOUSLY passed a bill to ban shark fin trading!
But that won't mean squat unless the New York state Assembly passes the bill which many people are positive will happen.
Here's what a spokesperson for the Humane Society said:
Animal activists stormed an animal research facility at the University of Milan in Italy.
The extreme supporters of animal rights released a number of mice and rabbits from their cages, and mixed up cage labels to disturb what experiments were going on.
The workers at the research facility were using the animals to research autism and schizophrenia.
Although no arrests were made - the university says it is considering pressing charges

Well this doesn't make much sense! Terrorism? REALLY?
That is, unless the lawmakers are super into abusing animals. Or being paid off. Those are the only ways we could EVER see this happening — because the collection of wide-reaching laws will effectively make it impossible to collect evidence of animal abuse from here on out!
We're talking about cutting off whistleblowers with good hearts or even videographers working with the Humane Society when their evidence usually ends with prosecutions, fines, and even reform among producers! Which is a GREAT thing! Those poor animals!
With the new bills, deemed "Ag-Gag," the people who collect the evidence must turn it into authorities as soon as it's collected, instead of being able to accumulate any detailed or significant body of evidence. Which normally would lead to better results against the offenders!
