This week a City Council committee will look at an ordinance that would end horse-drawn carriages in the city of Chicago.
The licenses are renewed each November, so if this happens quickly, the horse’s may not be in downtown during the holiday season.
Sponsors of the measure include Aldermen Raymond Lopez, 15th; Brendan Reilly, 42nd; Anthony Napolitano, 41st; and Brian Hopkins, 2nd. The main argument is that the horses could cause injuries to humans and many animal rights advocates have been fighting to get the horses off the street.
