Glee's Lea Michele denounces horse-drawn carriages for PETA



tbd-leamichele011011.jpgGlee's Lea Michele has really made the big time: She's now featured in a PETA video and print campaign to make you feel sorry for animals, in this case, the horse-drawn carriage equines in New York City. All we know is not to feed them Beef-O-Reeno.

"Imagine for a moment that you're forced to do hard physical labor all day, seven days a week — whether it's sweltering hot or freezing cold outside," Lea says. "At the end of the day, instead of relaxing on (an) easy chair or sleeping in a comfortable bed, you are locked in a tiny closet all night long." That sounds like a typical day in the life of The Juice*.

No, seriously, Lea is trying to show how the horses have to sit in traffic all day long, get hit by cars and are then stuffed into tiny stables overnight. If you want to get really depressed, check out the video above. Plus, after all that, we can vouch that those rides through Central Park are a real rip-off.
