Actually, I don't think there should be Surrey horses at all. It is an activity that is way outdated in my opinion.

It is so unfortunate about what happended to the horse the other day. I understand that the animal was dragged in the street being pulled by a truck? Are you serious? The problem with us is that no one wants to be held accountable for anything and that makes a lawless country. Its so confusing for many when they make these strict laws and yet they are still not enforced. Its like going to the bank to withdraw but you have $0.00.

The Tribune poll is an insult to the endless amount of protesting and awareness that has been done on behalf of these horses with the explicit goal of abolishing this horrible trade. No one has asked for "stricter guidelines", they have instead demanded a cease and desist of all surrey horse operations within the Bahamas.

I urge the Tribune to acknowledge this obvious truth and create a new poll asking readers whether or not they would support ending the surrey horse operation altogether. This has been a slap in the face and it is necessary that the Tribune and Bahamian government validate the efforts and claims of thousands who would continue to support the movement towards ending this trade completely for the betterment of the animals, economy and people of the Bahamas.

The Surrey horse operations should have been brought to an end years ago. They are no longer a 'quaint' sight - they are an eyesore - mainly because of the visual poor state of health of the animals.
