Mounted Unit horse retired by interim SFPD Chief Toney Chaplin

SFPD’s 19-year-old Mounted Unit Tennessee Walker “Gunny” was retired of his duties and fed a bucket brunch of apples and carrots during a retirement ceremony at Lefty O’Doul’s in San Francisco’s Union Square Wednesday, August 3, 2016. Lefty O’Doul’s nephew, Tom O’Doul, nailed the mounted horse’s shoe above Lefty’s front door alongside the horseshoes of six other retired SFPD horses.
