Escaped miniature horse runs loose along Ontario highway

Police in Ontario said a pair of witnesses stepped in to corral a runaway miniature horse seen running loose alongside a busy highway.

The Ontario Provincial Police said the mini horse escaped its pen and was spotted running alongside Highway 401 in Oxford County, just outside of Woodstock, Thursday morning.

A pair of passers-by spotted the loose animal and were able to corral the equine before it or any humans were injured.

The horse was returned to its home, OPP said.
