  9. Collapsed Horse Tied Up, Dragged, and Hoisted on Forklift : Please Protest
    Update from Amy Meyer
    Jerry the carriage horse revealed dead
    It saddens me to tell you that Carriage for Hire admitted today that Jerry, the horse who collapsed last Saturday while pulling a carriage in downtown Salt Lake City, has died. The carriage company tried at first to deceive the media and the public with a photo of a standing horse on Wednesday, but it was not Jerry. Only after they were called out on the photo discrepancy did they tell the media Jerry was retired to a farm, but refused to say where the farm is or allow them to see Jerry. No one had seen Jerry since the accident, including Salt Lake County Animal Services, but the company claims Jerry did not die until Friday. I, for one, do not find Carriage for Hire to be worthy of anyone's trust after all their lies this past week. Jerry's collapse and death are tragic evidence that we need to ban horse carriages on SLC streets. For more on this story see: Jerry the carriage horse died Friday after collapsing in Salt Lake City We will not let Jerry's death be forgotten. Please join us this TUESDAY, August 27 at 5:00 for the 'Justice for Jerry' vigil on the Northwest corner of the Salt Lake City County Building. Signs and leaflets will be provided for this silent protest to let Salt Lake City residents and City Council know why we want a complete ban of horse carriages on the streets of SLC. Just before 7:00 pm, we will walk in to the City Council meeting to present the signers of our change.org petition to the Salt Lake City Council and offer our input during the public comment time. Please dress appropriately and be sure to be polite in your comments. Keep in mind that the City Council is taking this issue very seriously and we should respect that they must have a deliberative process before enacting any ordinance. For more information about the 'Justice for Jerry' vigil, see 'Justice for Jerry' Vigil. You can also contact amy.meyer2009@gmail.com if you have questions regarding the event. Thank you for taking a stand for horses in Salt Lake City.
