  1. this picture of a dead Birillo - literally hog tied - being hoisted onto a truck - is so disrespectful. There had to be another way to remove his body. But then why should this horse be respected in death? He was not respected in life - forced to pull carriages of ignorant tourists and when he was dying - made to wait for help.

    This tiny industry is a liability to Rome. It needs to be shut down now.
