Birillo is one of many casualties of this cruel industry. Here he is dying after a traffic accident.

Horse that has Collapsed in Piazza Navonna

His name was Legoli, he was a champion. When they decided it was time for him to retired, they sold him to work as a carriage horse. He died afterone long hour of agony and pain after being hit late at night by a car. Please note that the law states that a horse cannot work for more than 6 hours a day. Why was he out so late at night?
