Actress and animal activist Pamela Anderson is on a new mission to stop the mistreatment of horses in New York City, by asking the city to ban horse-drawn carriage rides.
Anderson talked with her "Dancing with the Stars" pal Tony Dovolani about it. "I don't think the horses are being taken care of very well. I think they have miserable lives. There are plenty of sanctuaries that are willing to take them in and get them out of the streets of New York.
She says cities like London and Paris have already banned the carriage rides. "People that see the horses wandering around feel bad for them, so most cities have banned them. I just hope NY is going to, too."
Instead, Anderson suggests using old classic cars. "It has much political support because the carriage drivers will have the first crack at obtaining the licenses to drive these beautiful classic cars, which will be a lure to tourists and show that one can have a fabulous New York experience without dragging animals into it."
