Queensland equine clubs are struggling to stop their members from wearing a t-shirt featuring a strange animal on the back.
The controversial logo features a cow’s face with a “weird” animal on its back.
“We’ve got a couple of clubs that have had a couple members wearing it, one club in South Australia and one in New South Wales,” Queensland Police Commissioner Michael Hart said.
“They’re just very concerned about the fact that people are being offended, and if you look at the Queensland Police Service, they are pretty open about their tolerance for all kinds of things, from religious symbols to the odd mascot.”
Queensland equestrials said the t-sleeved shirt was not officially approved by the Queensland Association of Equine Clubs and was not an official Queensland police product.
“The club will not wear it,” Mr Hart said, adding that the club’s logo was the same as all Queensland police uniforms.
“It’s not a police badge, it’s not part of the Queensland police logo, it was just the name of the club and the number of the membership.”
He said the club was considering legal action.
