Everybody heard about the NYC cab horse who ran into a car in the middle of the city, causing mild tch-tching about this unnecessary and cruel industry. Most missed this brief follow-up in the Post:

CRASH-HANSOM OWNER STARVED HORSE The owner of the hansom cab involved in a life-threatening crash after its horse bolted has a history of abusing his animals, authorities said.
Lorenzo Riccobono, 52, is well known to animal-rights groups in Pennsylvania, where he rented horses to Amish farmers until selling his barn a few months ago.

If I remember right, the NYC horse was not a cab horse, it was a new, green police horse. But I could be wrong.
