Rome horse-drawn carriages raise concern due to heat


Rome, June 20 - Italian law enforcement
authorities have said they will initiate a series of checks on
Thursday and Friday to ensure horses used to draw carriages
through Rome for tourist entertainment are working under
acceptable conditions during the heat wave the Italian capital
is suffering.
The checks will involve not only temperature controls to
ensure tours are not being run in moments of peak heat
conditions, but also that the horses are being properly looked
after, and allowed to rest and drink.
In addition, local law states horses cannot draw public
carriages for more than 6 hours a day, and that they must rest
in the shade between one tour and another.
Police will also ensure animals are allowed to drink
sufficient water to combat the heat, that they are not pulling
excessive weight and that they don't run during the banned hours
of 1 pm to 5 pm during the day.
