THE Bahamas Humane Society strongly condemns the circumstances that led to the recent death of a working Surrey horse which collapsed and died in the middle of Christie Street, Nassau on November 7 and to the horrific sight, two days later, of a Surrey driver whipping his Surrey horse which was so weak and emaciated it had no strength left to pull the surrey.
IN view of the recent death of a surrey horse, the Nassau Tourism and Development Board is proposing entirely new stipulations and provisions for the popular downtown Nassau attraction – including moving the route the horses take.
VETERINARIAN Kwesi Smith said poor health may not have played a factor in the death of a surrey horse which collapsed in downtown Nassau on Tuesday.
ONLOOKERS watched in horror as a surrey horse, with tourists, collapsed and died on the corner of Dowdeswell and Christie Streets yesterday afternoon.
