Lea is taking a stand!
As many of you may know, or may not know, Lea Michele is a huge animal rights activist and has been championing the banning of horse and carriage rides in New York City for a while now. Well, it seems now that the Glee starlet is putting her foot down threatening not to return to the Big Apple if the poor horses are forced to be put through New York’s harsh winter.
She has attempted to reach out to New York’s mayor Mike Bloomberg several times regarding the issue. Here are a few of her tweets to Mayor Bloomberg:
"Please tweet to @MikeBloomberg if you agree that horse and carriages should no longer be on the busy streets of NYC. And let's end this."
"@MikeBloomberg please listen to the thousands of people who are saying that they no longer want horse & carriage rides in this city."
Being a New Yorker as well, we definitely understand Lea’s point of view. It is truly saddening to see those horses ride around all day in the scorching summers and the blistering cold winters. They always do look very sad.
The New Years Eve star later wrote:
"New York, u know how much I love you. But if I see another horse & carriage struggling in this winter weather I may not be able 2 be here."
The animals finally have someone speaking out for them. Good Job Lea! We are so proud! We think that everyone should join in and tweet Mayor Bloomberg asking him to ban carriage horses.
We will be sad not seeing Rachel Berry in NYC but we definitely support her 100%! TEAM LEA!!
Go here now to join Lea and help stop the abuse!
