California IN BRIEF : SACRAMENTO : Dog Days Tough on Carriage Horses

From Times staff and Wire reports

Mayor Anne Rudin and other city officials are looking for ways to protect carriage horses in historic Old Sacramento from the horrors of 100-degree heat. Mike Winters of the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said the city should give horses a four-hour work day, ban carriage-pulling between noon and 7 p.m. when the temperature rises above 80, and limit carriages to no more than four passengers.
