Now here’s a story you don’t see every day. Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt donated his horse, Spirit, to the Pittsburgh Police mounted unit on Friday.

Spirit is a beautiful horse that was at one time rescued and is now training to be with the mounted patrol.

Tuitt decided to donate Spirit to the Pittsburgh Police because his mother is in the police force and he wanted to give back.

We wish Spirit nothing but the best as the horse embarks on a new journey. We commend Tuitt for his thoughtfulness, both in terms of taking in a rescued horse and then giving the animal over for a good cause.
