PINELLAS COUNTY, FL (WFLA) - A basketball playing miniature horse is teaching kids to "just say whoa to bullying" in St. Petersburg.

Amos the Wonder Horse has played ball with the Harlem Globetrotters. He's also appeared on national TV and in dozens of magazines and newspapers. Now he's shooting hoops in St. Petersburg with his owner Shelly Mizrahi and St. Petersburg Police Officer Janie Staples.

Amos showed off his skills and anti-bullying initiative Thursday morning at the Police Athletic League summer camp. The new program is also available to any interested school in Pinellas County at no cost.

For more information about the "Just Say Whoa to Bullying" program, call (727) 490-8686.
