Early in Mayoral Battle, Carriage Horses Are Drawn Into Race

Wait, is this the same Steve Nislick who stated that he was willing to donate to Quinn if she played by his rules? http://tinyurl.com/blh7ot2

The same Steve Nislick that co-founded NYCLASS with a Ed Sayres, the outgoing president of the ASPCA, with a $450,000 donation from the ASPCA? The same ASPCA that is charged with monitoring the carriage horses, but is against the carriage horses, but can’t actually find anything wrong with the carriage horses even though they’ve tried awfully hard? http://tinyurl.com/dx6kown

The truth is that the New York City carriage horses are some of the most regulated animals in this country. The fact there has never been a citation for mistreatment or cruelty, even with an awful lot of folks looking for it (including the ASPCA which supports a ban), speaks volumes.

But, of course, this isn’t about the horses at all. It’s all about money and real estate: http://tinyurl.com/ct26eo6
