WATCH: Runaway horse captured on TX roadway

KATY, TX (WFLA) – A mare on the loose roamed a roadway near Katy, TX, last week. The Animal Control officer had to use a trick to finally capture it.

The mare ran away from a yard near the road. Police officers tried repeatedly to corral the animal but it kept running away. Finally police called the Animal Control officer who tapped on an empty feed bucket to lure the mare and finally capture him.

The horse’s adventure was caught on multiple dash cameras. It was taken to its owner who may now face criminal charges. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
