Horse Saved After Finding Its Way to Busy Highway


An escaped horse was rescued by police after managing to find its way to a busy highway in Spain. The incident brought the busy rush-hour traffic heading normally seen on the highway to Malaga to a complete halt.

Officers from the Casabermeja Local Police responded to the A-45 highway when multiple drivers called the 112 Andalucía emergency services line telling dispatchers a horse was wandering loose on the roadway.

It took around 20 minutes for the horse to be guided to the shoulder of the roadway and was kept safe by police until the animal’s owner was able to arrive at the scene. The owner arrived at the area with proper documentation for the horse, which had escaped from a nearby farm.

In a video posted by Casabermaja Police, the officers are shown escorting the horse to the nearest highway exit.

After getting the horse to safety, police confirmed that the horse was not injured and that there were no accidents resulting from the animal’s time on the highway.
