A police horse in Dallas, USA, is recovering after a large brick was thrown at its head by a protester.
Bloodied pictures of police horse ‘Cash’ were shared on social media by a photographer who has been covering the protests in Dallas.
Fire Department medics, along with their Dallas PD colleagues, helped to stem the flow of blood from the horses head by applying large bandages to the horses gaping wound.
Pictures show the horse bleeding heavily from the right side of its head, just below its eye guard, shortly after the incident.
One male was detained by officers and was arrested in connection with the incident. He was later charged with assaulting a police animal.
In a recent update, a spokesperson for the Dallas Police Department said that PH ‘Cash’ was ‘on the mend’ and is making a functional recovery.
