Progreso en Verde demands that the government free the galley horses, claiming that they are being exploited and abused.
The eco-animal party has made several requests for the release of the horses and says it is still waiting for answers. He also has accused the government of ignoring constant regulatory violations, laws and ordinances of drivers.
“It’s a shame that Palma city council does absolutely nothing to protect galley horses, they don’t care at all about the suffering of the horses or the image that it gives to Palma, said the president of Progreso en Verde, Guillermo Amengual. âSummer is fast approaching and the horses will be run again in terrible conditions and high temperatures, but the PSOE, MÃS and Podemos don’t care.
A complaint from Progreso en Verde regarding the poor condition of the galley horses has been forwarded to the Palma Mounted Police.
“It has been more than two weeks since we were told that an investigation would be carried out, but we still know absolutely nothing about it and we doubt that it was ever carried out”, explains Amengual. “The galley horses are in poor health and should not be exploited on the street, just look at them to see that they are not doing well. “
Progreso en Verde calls for Palma City Council to amend decree to prevent the use of horse-drawn carriages high temperatures; process a new prescription, remove bells from horses and change car stops to protect horses from the sun.
Amengual says all available mechanisms will be used to end the exploitation of horses.
