An Algonquin student is facing criminal charges after Kingston Police say he slapped a police horse at Queen's Homecoming.
Police in Kingston say three people, two men and one woman, are facing charges of injuring a law enforcement animal after a new horse, Murney, was slapped several times. That charge comes with a maximum of five years imprisonment.
Murney is still in training and was startled by the slaps but police say she "kept her restraint." She was not injured in the incident.
