Pretty much everyone everywhere knows that New York's carriage horses don't have the easiest life.
Thankfully, NY Mayor Bill de Blasio has a plan!
He's going to introduce legislation that will outlaw horse-drawn carriages!
Liam Neeson, however, doesn't agree with this at all. He feels that the horses don't suffer.
He also believes that it will rob carriage drivers of their livelihood.
Thankfully, the Irish actor might revise his opinion after hearing what the Irish animal rights organization ARAN (Animal Rights Action Network) has to say about his stance:
"He may be able to act and string lines together, but when it comes to understanding the suffering horses endure in all weather extremes often in suffocating traffic fumes in the carriage trade, sadly Mr. Neeson has been a flop. The Irish public is commending Mayor de Blasio in his progressive efforts to retire this outdated industry in favor of a New York City that can hold its head up high with streets that do not harbor horse abuse."
So not only does most of America disagree with Liam, his homeland of Ireland disagrees with him too.
Maybe he'll listen to them and finally change his opinion.
Save the carriage horses!
