Ban the inhumane use of police horses in protests and crowd control

This petition is calling on the government to stop the use of horses in controlling protests and crowds. Horses are animals, not machines or even people. They have no choice as to which job they do and therefore using them as protection for police against violent weapons such as fireworks, glass bottles and sometimes even knifes is disgusting! You would never use another human as a shield so why a horse. This petition comes in wake of the video surfacing of a firework being thrown at a police horse during a black lives matter protest. The horse bolted and as I am still aware is still loose in London and therefore will very very likely be put to sleep for its injuries when caught. This step would be a huge step for animal rights.
