We’ve always said we support all animals, and know the relationship with those animals and their person is an incredible thing.
In only a moment, a regular day turned into a life-threatening scenario for two members of the Houston Police Department. Yesterday a police horse was spooked, bucked her rider and ran into the street where she was unfortunately then hit by a truck.
The amazing part of this tragic story is what her rider did while she lay in the street. This is a picture of Officer D. Herrejon laying with her while she took her last breath.
We admire the heart and strength of this officer because, as you know, when you lose an animal, to be with them during their last breath is a heartbreaking and tough thing to do.
Thank you to him for loving his partner and friend until the end. Our hearts go out to him and the Houston Police family. RIP Charlotte.
