Madison, Wis. --- The Madison Mounted Horse Patrol said good-bye to one of its own this weekend.
"Jack" the horse was admitted into emergency surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine after colic symptoms turned serious. During surgery, it was determined that his condition was grave and he passed away.
Jack began his police career after being rescued from a horse auction and eventually was donated to the unit in 2010.
Officials with the mounted patrol ask that anyone wishing to donate in Jack's honor, to send them to:
The Friends of the Madison Mounted Horse Patrol
PO Box 2367 Madison, WI 53701
Donations can also be sent online at www.madisonmounted.org.
Funds will go towards furthering the mission of the Madison Mounted Police as well as helping to purchase the department's next police horse.
