Arabber ponies moved from condemned stable
Ponies that pull some of Baltimore’s few remaining arabber fruit and vegetable carts were moved yesterday to a new home after the city condemned their stable.
The horses were moved temporarily to a stable in Bowie and will later be moved to Pimlico Race Course, where their owners will have access to them so they can continue working.
The horses will be stabled at the racetrack temporarily while a permanent replacement is sought for the arabber stable, one of three remaining in the city.
Arabbers have been a part of Baltimore street life for decades, peddling produce and seafood on horse-drawn carriages.
Less than a dozen arabbers work the streets of Baltimore today.
Teen hospitalized after dog attack
A Willards teenager is recovering after being attacked by two loose dogs.
Jarritt Sybert, 14, said he was riding his bike home Tuesday evening along New Hope Road when the two dogs approached and began biting him.
When his mother arrived minutes later, the dogs were still attacking her son.
She and a neighbor pulled him to safety, then drove him to Atlantic General Hospital.
Authorities said the teen has about 40 puncture marks on his body.
The two dogs, a pit bull mix and a shepherd mix, were seized.
