Horse helps St. Petersburg police launch anti-bullying campaign

"Just Say Whoa to Bullying," the St. Petersburg Police Department's new anti-bullying initiative, was launched Thursday morning to the delight of dozens of children at the Police Athletic League of St. Petersburg at 1450 16th St. N. The program, approved by the Pinellas County School Board and available within the county at no cost, featured Amos the Wonder Horse, a basketball-playing miniature horse used by Officer Janie Staples to help engage school-aged children to bring home the anti-bullying message. Shelly Mizrahi, the owner of Amos, volunteered her time and resources to assist the Police Department in this effort.
