'Glee's' Lea Michele wants you to ride a cab, not a horse
You know those romantic carriage rides through the city streets that seem to be so popular when all the holiday lights are out? Michele, posing next to a horse that's so pretty we're not entirely sure it didn't come out of a My Little Pony box, wants to make sure you know that the romance isn't worth the trauma it may cause to the animals.
"Imagine for a moment that you're forced to do hard physical labor all day, seven days a week--whether it's sweltering hot or freezing cold outside," Lea says. "At the end of the day, instead of relaxing on an easy chair or sleeping in a comfortable bed, you are locked in a tiny closet all night long. That's what it's like for horses who are forced to pull carriages in New York City."
"Don't get taken for a ride," she says. "Please boycott horse-drawn carriages."
