Animals Right Group Posing Alleged Threat to Greeley Horse Statue

Authorities will be keeping an eye on a beloved Greeley landmark this weekend.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says they have received information that an animal rights group has been recruiting its members to attack the community’s Clydesdale statue known as Pete the Horse. 

The statue was a gift to the Greeley community in 1987 from the Anheuser-Busch company in honor of two brothers from Greeley, Walt and Don Brady, who were drivers for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitches. 

The information that the Sheriff’s Office received alleged that the attack would happen this Saturday, April 1st, but authorities weren’t given any specific details on the type of attack.

Sheriff John LeClere says they have asked the City of Greeley to inform its residents of the potential attack on the Clydesdale statue. He says the Sheriff’s Office will also be increasing patrols in the Greeley area. 

Greeley residents are encouraged to report any suspicious activity.
