- Chicago police officers with the Mounted Unit have been warned by the department to stop dumping fresh horse manure in Jackson Park on the South Side.
On any given day, Mounted Unit officers can be seen stopping in Jackson Park, and shoveling horse manure from their trailers onto Park District property along the golf course – on the street, curb, grass, and around trees.
“The amount of the manure was absolutely astounding,” said Lyletta Robinson, a woman who frequents the park.
Officers muck out their trailers while on their way to the stables at the nearby South Shore Cultural Center.
C'mon guys and gals. You have what is arguably the best gig on the Department. It's about the most legit test there is, the training is extensive, and everyone (we mean everyone) loves a cop on a horse. We've been to South Shore. They have big dumpsters there and a section by the golf course that you can dump the shit in to compost before fertilizing the lawn. You could probably pay a neighborhood waif to turn the pile daily if needed.
