Mike Bloomberg sneaks out of his town house to protest Animal Activists

Mike tends to use very, very big NYPD officers as a wall to literally make himself invisible and these Animal Activists let him have it for his push to gas geese which is suppose to be a very slow and cruel death by the way....

I heard there were so amazing hand made signs that did not make it to The New York Daily News.

Also from Animal Activists -- note the many warnings 2 legged New Yorkers have been given about heat advisories -- imagine if you are 4 legged and pulling a carriage in NYC.   Horses do not belong in NYC pulling carriages.   The street conditions are also the worst I have seen them and that is also thanks to Mike Bloomberg pushing a reckless tsunami of development on old NY's infrastructure....a human being or a horse could break a leak on New York City Streets.  Mike Bloomberg would not allow his daughter's horses to walk the streets of NYC.

No horses injured -- sprinkler law required - take action
Fire ChateauAccording to WABC TV news and eye witnesses, a fire broke out at Chateau Stables on Thursday night. We heard that no horses were injured.This from WABC: August 6, 2010 -- WEST SIDE (WABC) -- A horse stable on Manhattan's West Side caught on fire Thursday. The electrical fire started at Chateau Stables just after 9 p.m. on West 48th street between 11th and 12th avenues. The fire department quickly got the fire under control. There were no injuries, and it appears none of the carriage horses needed to be evacuated. See this video of the damage onYoutube.Sprinklers are not a legal requirement for NYC horse stables although stables generally house very flammable material -- such as hay, wood stalls and carriages ...not to mention the lives of the many horses who are stuck on the upper floors and whose only means of egress is the ramp, which will act as a chimney if there is a fire. This has been an issue that has been suppressed by the City Council for years. More than five years ago there was actually a bill that called for sprinklers in horse stables that was killed. More recently a bill that called for sprinklers in establishments that house animals - such as pet stores - has been ignored.
To add insult to injury, in February, the Department of Health (DoH) proposed the following changes to Article 161 of the NYC Health Code. . The DoH rescinded the proposal when Intro 35-A was passed. Intro 35-A did not address these issues.
  • (6) Fire hazards. Premises shall be kept free of fire hazards. Effective July 1, 2011, all buildings in which stables are located shall be equipped with an operational sprinkler system installed in accordance with §BC903.3.1.1 of the New York City Building Code, or successor provision. (8) Electrical wiring. (A) All electrical appliances shall be plugged directly into properly grounded electrical outlets. (B) Electrical wiring shall be installed and maintained in metal electrical conduits. (C) Extension cords may be used for brief periods of time, not to exceed three (3) hours, and 25 such cords shall be disconnected and removed when the appliances or tools to which they are connected are not being used.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR COUNCIL MEMBER: Tell them that sprinklers must be required in horse stables, which are highly flammable by nature. Tell them about the fire at Chateau Stables, which could have been much worse. Ask them to support a bill to require sprinklers in all stables. Click Here for the council web site. It is preferred to send a snail mail letter or fax. E-mail is not guaranteed to get through. Also contact MAYOR BLOOMBERG - on line -- or by snail mail at Mayor Michael Bloomberg, City Hall, New York, NY 10007
contact Speaker Quinn and your Council Member
