Horses are huge, powerful, fast, and capricious. In other terms, they can be risky, especially if you try to mess with them. A woman, whose identity still remains unknown, learned her lesson after she smacked a police horse named Murney.
Murney, the latest entry to the police service’s mounted unit, was on patrol with her co-worker on a Saturday afternoon when out of nowhere, a woman runs toward her and smacked the police horse multiple times. In a short video posted on social media, we can spot this woman running up behind a horse and whacking him on the side.
The police have charged three people after they slapped a Kingston, Ont. police horse during the yearly Queen’s University homecoming celebration event. Murney was originally hit by the suspects at 2:55 p.m., then five minutes later and a third time at around 3:30 p.m. A woman was released at the scene and police are in the process of issuing a warrant.
Two men were arrested and taken to a police station where they were charged with inducing harm to a law enforcement animal. The horse can be seen responding and kicking its left rear foot before the woman slips down and runs away. “It could have turned out into a woeful situation. The animal still kept its composure. Luckily the animal didn’t bolt and the officer wasn’t harmed.” Const. Steve Koopman said. Watch the video below and tell us your opinion about this complicated story.
