The incident took place earlier this week in Portland’s Old Town, near a bus depot.
From Huffington Post:
Police in Portland, Oregon, say they have arrested a 29-year-old man accused of running up to a police horse, uttering a “karate-like battle cry” and delivering what a spokesman calls “a jumping, double kick” to the horse’s right thigh.
Police say the horse named Olin was unfazed and unhurt Wednesday. A police spokesman notes Olin outweighed his attacker by about 1,000 pounds.
It’s not the first time a police horse has been attacked on duty — see past stories below, and we did a roundup of recent incidents here. What is wrong with people?
On behalf of HN, we would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to the police horses of the world, for putting up with the human race.
Thanks to Karlie Mitchell and John for the tip. Go police horses!
