Animal hospital offers to treat horses injured during weekend protests

In Cincinnati, Ohio, an animal hospital has stepped forward and offered to help any police horses from the Cleveland Police Mounted Unit injured during the weekend protests. The Animal Eye Institute will treat horses suffering from eye injuries.

Animal Eye Institute
“We aren’t in any way going to get political here, but if any police horses have eye injuries from protests from Columbus down to Lexington, we will treat them for free. Just call the office or send us an email. The big gentle giants don’t deserve to be hurt,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.

Demonstrators have taken to the streets across the nation in response to the death of George Floyd who died on Monday while in the custody of Minneapolis police officers.

Photos and videos were shown on Twitter and news stations of protesters throwing objects at mounted police officers – hitting the horses in the faces. The Cincinnati area has seen violence as protesters threw bottles and rocks at police.

It is not known if any of the horses have been injured, but the Animal Eye Institute asked officers to reach out to them if the horses needed any help.

    Excuse me but the police are using the horses as battering rams, knocking down peaceful marchers and the horses are made to trample the people! Just like they train dogs to attack and rip human flesh. Cops should not be using animals to harm people.

    I agree with the previous 3 comments.The police should not take horses in harms way and definitely should not use the horses as some sort of tank. I also feel very indifferent about the title of this article. It leads one to believe that horses are commonly being hurt due to the protests and are in dire need of medical attention. That is not the case. There has to be a better way to raise funds without misleading us.
