SPD Mounted Unit Not Headed to the Glue Factory After All

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee February 7, 2011

It appears that despite earlier reports of its demise, the horses in SPD's mounted unit won't be turned into glue or shoes any time soon.

After SPD was asked to cut 1.5% from its budget last year, it looked like the department's mounted unit was finally done for.

But now, this emotional rollercoaster has taken yet another turn:

We're told that a private foundation is shelling out enough cash to keep those big ol' police horses pooping hooves on the street.

SPD's holding a press conference at 2:30 at Westlake Park to announce all of that.

And that's all the horse news we have for you today.
