Rome horse carriage operators risk trial (2)

For putting animals in narrow, unfit conditions

(ANSA) - Rome, September 28 - Rome horse-drawn carriage operators risk trial for mistreating their animals, judicial sources said Thursday. A dozen or so owners of the famed 'botticelle' are suspected of housing their horses in narrow and unsuitable conditions, the sources said. Animal rights activists have for years complained about the botticelle because of the alleged suffering they cause animals on the Italian capital's rough cobbled streets.
