Pit bull bites police horse
By KIM BRADLEY, TORONTO SUN
Trooper is turning out to be a real trooper.
The veteran Toronto police horse was attacked yesterday by two dogs -- including an unmuzzled pit bull -- while on patrol with his rider in the city's west end.
"The horse valiantly fought off the dogs," said Sgt. Peter Spurling. "He's going to make a full recovery."
Spurling said Trooper and his rider, Const. James Flett, were out patrolling near the CNE grounds at Manitoba Dr. and Fleet St. yesterday when they came across a man walking two dogs.
The dogs saw the horse and got away from their owner, attacking Trooper, Spurling said.
"(Flett) turned Trooper and cantered away from the dogs," Spurling said. "It's amazing he was able to stay on."
The man got control of one of the dogs, but the other ran away. It was quickly found and animal control officers were called.
The dog owner is facing charges, Spurling said.
Trooper suffered several cuts and puncture wounds to his legs, but is expected to return to work once he recovers.
