The Houston Police Department officer has been patrolling the streets of the city for the past four years with his partner, Charlotte. They were real partners.
The horse has been specially trained for the necessary skills of this profession.
One day, the partners were performing their police duties as usual, when a terrible misfortune happened!
Suddenly the horse got frightened and threw off the policeman. Not understanding what she was doing, she ran out onto the road, where she was hit by a truck.
The horse covered in blood fell to the ground. She tried to get up, but her broken leg couldn’t support her weight and she fell again. The frightened officer ran up to his partner.
The horse was mortally wounded and lived her last minutes. D. Herrekhon understood that he had very little time to say goodbye to the horse. He bowed his head to the horse and lay down beside the animal. The moment of emotional goodbye was heartbreaking.
The horse and the officer were both lying on the road, and the people standing near them could not hold back their tears.
The Houston Police Department that evening confirmed that Charlotte had died. They paid tribute to their police horse with an emotional Facebook post.
“Charlotte was a loyal police horse. She loved her job and was always ready to fulfill her responsibilities. She came to HPD as an inexperienced two-year-old Tennessee Walker from Oklahoma and soon became an indispensable assistant to us. She served the people of Houston for 4 years. We all will miss her very much”, the post reads.
