Now just after reading this, I almost thought it was a joke! How could you get charged with slapping a horse? Well it was not just any horse, it was a police horse.

An Algonquin College student is now being charged with “injuring a law enforcement animal” which could lead up to 5 years of¬†imprisonment. But is this really the right call? In my opinion I agree with some sort of punishment but I feel like 5 years is a little to much… What if it was just a regular horse on the street or one that people ride in downtown Ottawa during the summer… Would you still get charged in that situation?
