IMPD Mounted Patrol mourns loss of horse Colonel

IMPD’s Mounted Horse Patrol Association announced the loss of one of its horses this week after the animal was put down due to age and pain. Colonel, a Percheron Thoroughbred cross who had served on IMPD’s Mounted Patrol for the past six years, was euthanized earlier this month, according to the independent, non-profit organization which purchases all of the unit’s horses. "He was in a lot of pain, and after much deliberation with the officers, we recognized the best thing for Colonel was to put him to rest," said Allan Whitesell, Mounted Patrol unit commander. "He was a strong horse and strong partner.”
