Miniature Horse Leads Police on Two-Hour Chase

While miniature horses are smaller than regular horses, they can be just as much of a handful. An escaped miniature horse that was spotted loose in Alabama led police on a two-hour chase before being safely corralled.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department wrote on Facebook that the small horse was spotted in the Alberta section of the city at about 10 p.m. on March 20, 2023. “He was extremely unwilling to go with the officers at first and not at all interested in the pizza crusts or peppermints they offered,” the post read.

During the chase, the horse led officers “in a low-speed foot pursuit” for about two hours before they managed to safely capture it. “He eventually allowed himself to be caught and was happy to get pets and pose for selfies,” police wrote online.

The department even jokingly added a mugshot for the mini horse, which they dubbed Ginuwine in honor of the “Pony” singer. The fake mugshot said that the horse was booked on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Police are now trying to reunite the animal with its owner.
