Catch a Police Horse by the Tail

Catch a Police Horse by the Tail

Photo Credit: onatan Sindel/Flash90

On Thursday, hundreds of Haredim demonstrated in Jerusalem, declaring that they do not recognize the Zionist State and why did the state stop their SS payments just because they refuse to be drafted.

It takes years of devoted learning to come up with an answer to this complicated sugia-issue. Meanwhile they fought the cops, the cops beat down on them, and at one point this Haredi guy, hat covered in plastic against police hosing, grabbed this police horse’s tail.

Classic Man vs. Beast situation.

I have it on good authority the horse was deeply offended.

  1. Shame on this hasdic, the horse could be female…

  2. Faleen Fedol says:

    It is amazing how the tenets of Judaism apply to these poor excuses for humans only when it is convenient….torturing an animal is fine in this case, however i am certain that this disgusting individual can probably quote chapter and verse as to where the teachings of Judaism speak about not harming animals. So i assume that this is what this 'learned' man (no i wouldn't even consider him a man for that action) is wasting time and tax payers money for.

  3. Dear Faleen, the protester probably was annoying the horse rather than actually hurting him, because a horse's tail is very strong. During long distance races like the Tevis cup, riders routinely follow their horses up steep mountains and hang on to their tails, allowing the horses to drag them along. This is easier on the horse than having to carry the rider up a steep slope. However, this horse may have been frightened by having his tail pulled by someone he did not know, and it is more uncomfortable to have the tail pulled to the side. Yet I am quite sure that there was no injury involved. If the horse were frightened enough or felt enough discomfort, he could easily swing his rear end towards the man and kick him, possibly killing him, which is why this was a foolhardy thing for the man to do. However, it is more likely that the horse moved off and the man was forced to let go. The horse may be swinging away from the man in order to force him to let go.
