Letter: Furry fuss

The fuss over gay animals (Letters, 25 November) reminds me of an otherwise peaceful London street protest in 2006 when a student approached a mounted policeman and said: "Excuse me, officer, I'm sure your horse is gay."

He was immediately arrested and charged with causing "emotional distress to the horse and its rider" before being released with a warning as to his future conduct.
