Will you notice the passage of the mounted police?

By johnboy 6 April 2011 21

The ABC has the surprising news that Canberra’s mounted police unit is being axed.

With just two police involved it seems unlikely they’d ever have more than one available when needed which might explain the axing.

We’ve got a question in with the AFP as to what will become of the horses.

UPDATE: This in from an AFP spokesperson:

In early May, the horses will be given to the NSW Mounted Police.
Until that time, the AFP will continue to care for the horses in their current facilities.

I think you will find they use horses to move protesters back, like some Police use shields, batons, water cannons, tear gas or fire arms.

Nothin’ says “Move Back”, like a good trampling. 🙂
