MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) Friends of Madison Mounted Horse Patrol shared in a Facebook post Monday that the last original Madison Police horse has passed away.

It says Max lived a long life and passed away at 40-years-old. Max had started patrolling around 12-years-old and served with his officer owner, Meredyth Thompson, before they both retired.

Friends of Madison Mounted Horse Patrol says the first Mounted Police Team paved the way for Madison's Mounted Patrol Unit today.
