Slurpee, a 17-year-old member of Baltimore’s mounted patrol unit was retired earlier this year after 10 years of service to the city. He was donated by 7-Eleven who raised funds to purchase and train the horse. This week 7-Eleven stepped up again donating Slurpee’s replacement, Slurpee.
New Slurpee is a 4-year-old, part draft who even looks a bit like the original Slurpee. He has already passed his training and was officially initiated into the mounted patrol unit October 4th. Like his predecessor, Slurpee will serve as a four-legged ambassador of safety for the citizens of Baltimore.
