A Random Horse Was Wandering Highway 7 Today & Police Caught It With The Skinniest Rope

Ontario Provincial Police captured a random horse in Lanark County early this morning after it was spotted wandering around a highway.

Police responded to the traffic hazard on Highway 7 east of Perth at around 3:15 a.m. on Friday, according to a post on Twitter.

Police secured the horse on private property with what appears to be an extremely skinny yellow rope tied to an overhanging tree branch.

The average horse could weigh anywhere from several hundred to thousands of pounds which means this rope had its work cut out for it if the horse decided to bolt.

In a tweet, OPP asked anyone "missing a horse please contact 1-888-310-1122."

At 8:13 a.m., police shared an update on Twitter that the adventurous horse had been reunited with its owners and returned home.
