The La Ronde de Montréal amusement park has removed a horse carousel with a cut-off Aboriginal head.
A resident of the Kahnawake Mohawk Reserve near Montreal said she heard about the existence of the object and saw it during a visit to La Ronde on Wednesday.
Jessica Hernandez subsequently published on Facebook and Twitter pictures of the man’s head on the saddle.
She said she was shocked to find out, but was satisfied with the withdrawal.
Hernandez said she was disappointed to learn that he had many complaints regarding the ride.
La Ronde spokeswoman Julie Perrone confirmed by e-mail that the horse has been removed..
“The offensive symbol has been withdrawn and we apologize to our guests,” she wrote on Friday.
