Do something about abuse

This letter was copied to Environment Minister Walter Roban

September 16, 2011

Dear Sir,

We have the saddest looking horses one could see anywhere. What a poor advertisement for Bermuda, our stunning little island. I have had tourists and locals alike tell me how depressing it is to see these poor creatures plodding along Front Street and around town in the strongest heat of the day all summer long. How can anyone who loves animals or supposedly looks after animals, treat or allow them to be treated in this manner? The present drivers also like to go one behind the other so that it makes it impossible for the traffic to get around them and then drivers get impatient and drive in a less than cautious way. Someone in Government enables this to go on and on, no matter how many complaints are made. It is not just horses as the number of farm animals which are kept in disgusting conditions on this wonderful (and supposedly prosperous) Island is appalling. Please can everyone put pressure on the powers that be to do something about this situation and can all the silent complainers speak up!
