I welcome anyone with a voice and a heart to take a stand against this animal cruelty. I have to witness these poor animals every time I step outside. I've been troubled by these carriages since the first time I made eye contact with one of the mules. I've also spoken to the operators and the conversation angered me that much more. Any idiot can look at them and conclude they are in pain. They do not receive proper nourishment. They are dehydrated. The humans responsible for this should be shot.

This thread seems like it lost some steam. I'm new to the area, although I grew up here. We moved back recently from Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. In Lower Merion Township they have a community compost dump where you can take your yard compost and dump it for free. You can also go to another area and pick up good free composted soil that has aged. The service was partly covered by our taxes (which, by the way, are not as high as they are here). We only had one day of trash pick up, more than enough for most families, and the other day was for recyclables, which included yard wast. If it was sticks, it had to be tied in smaller bundles (we kept those for kindling). Leaves and grass and cuttings had to be in extra large, uniform, double paper bags which could be bought from the township or bought at local grocery and hardware stores. The sale of the bags helped subsidize the service. Makes so much sense. Less yucky trash to be picked up and less in the landfill, better use of natural resources, and encouragement to keep yards looking tidier. Also, the sale of the bags (around $4 per dozen) added to the local economy, and the bags were biodegradable. Just have to train people as to what can go in healthy compost, but what a great and important lesson.

Thanks for posting Deborah ... would you like to take the thread over? I'm sure Tippy would be cool with that.
