Police Horse Down

I have to agree with Matt. Why is the Toronto police force still using horses?

Don't misunderstand me, like Matt I'm as sad as the next guy to see a horse killed in the line of duty, but it begs the question what use is a police force these days that patrols the city on horseback?
