An awful story of an officer on obligation who lost his accomplice and his companion, six-year-old stallion, Charlotte. She has been with the Houston Police Office for a long time.
This story will make you beyond sad. Tragically on December 3, she was being hit by a bond truck. Officer D. Herrejon who was her rider, declined to walk out on her.
Peruse their delightful and heartbreaking story below.
The cop stayed by her side on the sidewalk as she was taking her final breaths.
The pair was an attraction of the city.
The police department posted a few photographs of Charlotte alongside the declaration of her death on the Facebook post. 'It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Charlotte, an HPD Mounted Patrol horse, who died in the line of duty this morning in a motor vehicle accident,' The department posted on Facebook.
Charlotte loved being in action when catching the bad guys.
The department also added in the post that she will be remembered fondly.
