Playing a game of horse

With the livelihoods of  a few hundred people, but what's that to a political activist;

"Animals just do not belong on the streets of New York City," Councilman Daniel Dromm of Queens, who introduced the bill [to ban horse and buggy rides in NYC], told supporters at an outdoor rally.
"We know beyond doubt that using horses to pull tourists through congested city streets for long hours is unnatural, unnecessary and an undeniable strain on the horses' quality of life," said Natasha Whitling, a spokeswoman for the American Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Beyond doubt? From the horses' mouths?
