Late Night Horse Chase Ends In a Stable Situation
Unfortunately, this story of "errant equines" in the wee morning hours in Rolling Hills Estates has more of a trotting speed than a gallop, but we can all use a little good news. City News Service reports the two horses on the loose in the area of Hawthorne Boulevard and Palos Verdes Drive were reported at 3 a.m.
Deputy Mike Schiebe of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Lomita Station explains what happened:
"They were just kind of wandering around and deputies were able to corral them, kind of round them up a little bit, then they found a guy to come out and take care of them. He thought he knew the owners and was going to call them in the morning.''
Hopefully everything is stable now. (Wink, wink!)
