Video Showing Caleche Horse Collapsing From Exhaustion In Old Montreal
One of the many reasons why this needs to be banned.
It's something that has happened way too many times in Montreal, and yet here we are again. A horrifying video is spreading on Facebook of a caleche horse collapsing in Old Montreal on Sunday.
Apparently the horse and the driver were lined up waiting for customers when the horse fell to the ground. He layed there for at least 8 minutes before 3 caleche drivers managed to get him back up.
Similar incidents have happened in the past.. A year before that and that same year, .
Montreal had plans to ban the caleches altogether, but in the end they just added some rules and regulations on how long horses can work. As you can see these rules aren't very effective.
