Police horse loaned to Rebekah Brooks returned in ‘poor’ condition | News
A Met spokesman said: “In 2007 a request was made by Rebekah Brooks to home a retired police horse. Mounted Branch conducted the normal property and welfare inspection, which was passed.
“The Metropolitan Police Service was contacted in early 2010 by an individual on behalf of Rebekah Brooks who asked the MPS to re-home Raisa, which was then 24, due to the horse no longer being ridden. When the horse was returned Raisa was regarded by officers from Mounted Branch to be in a poor but not serious condition. The horse was subsequently rehoused with a police officer in 2010, and later died of natural causes.”
