It was a bit of an urban adventure early this morning for a horse in South Los Angeles who managed to get out of a stable and go for a jaunt on East Imperial Highway. Luckily the horse was tracked down and did not sustain any injuries, according to City News Service.

The horse was found in the yard of a home in South L.A., and had been missing about half an hour. Los Angeles Police Department officers spotted the equine and called on City of Los Angeles Department of Animal Regulation workers to pick up the animal.
