Pamela Anderson - Pamela Anderson Calls For Horse Carriage Ban Following Another Animal Death

Actress and animal rights supporter Pamela Anderson is urging fans to back a campaign calling for the ban of horse-drawn carriages in New York following the death of a second mare in two weeks.
The former Baywatch beauty wants devotees to join her and Glee star Lea Michele in signing an online petition for the New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets organisation in a bid to persuade Mayor Michael Bloomberg to outlaw the traditional carriage ride.
Two horses have collapsed within days of one another while transporting passengers across Manhattan and Anderson wants something done about it before the tourist attraction claims the life of another mammal.
In a post on her Facebook.com page, she writes, "For the second time in less than two weeks, a carriage horse has collapsed on a Manhattan street. Horses do not belong in a congested, urban setting where they are constantly breathing exhaust and sharing the streets with cars, buses and taxis."
Fellow animal lover Michele drew attention to the issue by penning an open letter to Bloomberg last month (Oct11) after hearing about how one carriage horse collapsed during a walk in Central Park.
