Denver police horse euthanized after left tied up 16 hours; officer docked vacation day

Tuesday's Horse

DENVER (KDVR) — A Denver police officer on the mounted patrol unit has been docked one day of vacation as punishment after documents showed his horse was left tied up for 16 hours without food or water.

A disciplinary letter said that on Sept. 26, officer Joseph Teeter finished his mounted patrol shift and returned to the Denver Police Mounted Patrol Barn to unload his horse, MC Hammer, into a stall.

Teeter tied the horse to an eye hook with a rope that left about 2 to 3 feet of slack. The letter said Teeter “became distracted doing paperwork and forgot he had left the horse tied in the stall.”

The horse was discovered still tied up in the stall at 6:15 a.m. the next morning. The horse had no access to food or water during those 16 hours.
