The police received calls about a horse wandering around the highway, stopping cars and putting drivers in danger.

“It was pretty chaotic,” said the South Metro Public Information Officer, Eric Hurst. “There were cars all over the place, there were people in and out of traffic, and it was very, very unsafe.”

Fortunately, first responders were able to round up the horse and get her off the road. The horse is currently being held at the Equine Harmony Center in nearby Franktown. The owners of the scared mare are unknown at this time.
