Video: Polizeipferd Breeze Im Ruhestand Von West Yorkshire Police
Ein langjähriges Polizeipferd „trottet in den Ruhestand“nach fast 11 Dienstjahren.
Breeze zieht sich von der West Yorkshire Police zurück, nachdem er 2010 als 11-Jähriger der Polizei beigetreten ist.
Ein Sprecher der Truppe sagte, der 21-jährige Wallach, der während seiner Karriere an mehr als 2000 Einsätzen teilgenommen hatte, zog auf eine Farm in Derbyshire, wo er seinen Ruhestand mit anderen Pferden auf 30 Hektar Land genießen soll.

“breeze has been deployed to nearly every community across the county as well as mutual aid to other forces,” he said. “he’s done that faithfully and honestly, he’s a good hardworking horse. he’s been a very important part of our family here.”
the gelding was in attendance at a number of high profile incidents including the 2018 helicopter crash at leicester city football club, and was also pictured with his equine colleague bud when bud was punched outside newcastle football grounds in 2013.
mounted section inspector nicola brown said breeze had been a “reliable, brave and solid horse” during his time in the force.
“he’s taught many new riders in the mounted section and also helped many new horses settle in,” she said. “breeze has seen it all, he’s been deployed to protests, concerts and football matches. he was a firm favourite at leeds united over the years.
“the whole team here is going to miss him dearly. we wish him all the best as he retires where he will be getting a well-earned rest.”
the spokesman added the gelding will have “very difficult shoes to fill”.
