URGE BGC TO PUT A STOP TO HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGES

A note from PeTA

Dear kind readers,

PeTA Asia recently discovered Bonifacio Global City (BGC) offers kalesa rides, otherwise known as horse-drawn carriage rides. Amid the plethora of vehicles lining BGC’s streets, horses are forced to pull heavy carriages merely to fulfill tourists’ fantasies of a historic cultural experience. These gentle animals suffer from respiratory ailments because they breathe in exhaust fumes, and they develop debilitating leg problems from walking on hard surfaces. Some horses have even dropped dead from heatstroke after working in scorching heat and humidity.







Although PeTA Asia has repeatedly contacted BGC to share information about the cruelty involved in forcing horses to cart around tourists and locals alike, officials there have refused to address the issue in any meaningful way. We need your help!

Please write to BGC’s officials and demand a ban on this deadly “attraction”:

E-mail info@bgc.com.ph or take action here.

Post on BGC’s Facebook page.

Tweet to BGC.

Thank you in advance for taking action for animals!

For all animals,

The PETA Asia Team
