New law enforcement tool

As you may know, I come from England where for many years the police have used horses to aid them in crowd control. The officers get a good vantage point, are highly mobile, and produce much-needed fertilizer for the local communities.

Similarly, police dogs are a huge asset to law enforcement. They sniff out drugs and bombs, and they can find escapees and injured victims.

Law enforcement in Austin, always progressive and sometimes weird, is taking things even further - completely mangling the adage "never work with kids or animals." What's happening now is a combination of all three - kids, horses and dogs.

How? you ask.
