I wasn’t going to blog this, but it keeps calling me, begging to be mentioned.
There’s a group home that owns 3 acres of property within the city limits. They want to have two miniature horses for therapeutic purposes. But because of some neighbours being worried about potential problems, the horses have been removed because of a zoning bylaw.
Ok, the horses aren’t being kept in an apartment, they have a stable and a big area to run in. Their waste is being managed, and everything is being paid for by the home. They can’t get out to the neighbours. Why not wait and see if the animals are going to be a problem and then invoke the bylaw? They had already been brought onto the property before they were removed, so it’s not like removing them is a big hastle. God, some people are closed-minded and can’t take things on a case by case basis.
