Footage has emerged on social media which shows various missiles being thrown at police horses by cowards during the violent protests in London yesterday evening (13th June).
In the footage, various items, including flares and rocks, rain down on the horses, their riders and public order officers as they try to contain violent protesters during last nights disorder in the Capital.
The Met’s mounted branch have not reported any injuries to their horses or their officers.
Last weekend, a mounted officer was seriously injured after her horse bolted when violent protesters threw rocks, bottles and fireworks towards the Met’s Mounted Unit.
The footage of the incident caused outrage amongst decent-minded people who were disgusted at the way the police horses had become the target of violent thugs.
However, that target was hit within hours of the campaign starting. The total amount raised by the campaign now stands at nearly £14k.
