TKC MUST SEE!!! KMBC PREZ SARAH SMITH URGES KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA HORSE CARRIAGE RIDE SHUT DOWN!!!
Kansas City animal rights activists earn IMPORTANT support from one of the leading TV stations in metro area.
Here is a game changing editorial:
Sarah Smith, KMBC and KCWE President and General Manager: "Kansas City should follow the lead of other cities by banning horse-drawn carriages. While some say that one incident should not stop the rides, advocates say the time has come.
Horses are sensitive and skittish animals who can become easily spooked even in their natural environments. Add traffic and pedestrians and it's only a matter of time until something tragic happens . . ."
Remember not so long ago a KMBC editorial proved to be the deciding factor in the Schlitterbahn shut down of the deadly Verrückt water slide.
Accordingly, this statement from the local leader marks and EPIC win for critics of the carriage rides.
