The image of a carriage horse that collapsed on July 17th allegedly due to a heat stroke in Izamal went viral on social networks.
According to SIPSE the accident took place on Wednesday July 17th, around 11:00 a.m., while the horse was walking on Calle 3, downtown Izamal, the horse suddenly vanished.
Tourists and local pedestrians who witnessed the incident expressed their outrage and concern, as the animal allegedly fell down due to a heat stroke, as a consequence of the extremely high temperatures. Although some people said that the animal slipped. So far the official cause of the accident is unknown.
It is worth mentioning that on Friday July 12, there was a similar event, where a horse pulling a carriage collapsed right by the Zamná Park, before the eyes of many national and foreign tourists. And three weeks ago, another horse fell down on the corner of Calle 60 and Avenida Colón.
In five cities or municipalities of the country horse-drawn carriages are used. Cozumel, Acapulco, Mérida, Izamal and Motul (three of them belonging to Yucatan).
Meanwhile, in Guadalajara, this system was changed to electric carriages to end animal abuse.
