ASPCA On The Trail Of Loose Carriage Horse
ASPCA ON THE TRAIL OF LOOSE CARRIAGE HORSE
On the evening of Monday, September 4, a carriage horse broke loose from
his hansom cab at Central Park South and Avenue of the Americas. As he
galloped up Central Park West, the horse--a Morgan-Percheron known as
Angus--was pursued on foot and collared by two of New York's Finest more
than a mile away at the Dakota building on 72nd street.
Concerned for the horse's condition after his run through Manhattan's
Upper West Side, an ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement agent visited Angus at
his stable on Tuesday morning. Our agent verified that Angus was receiving
veterinary care for the scrapes on his hind legs that he received from
falling during his adventure. Other than these minor abrasions, Angus had
no other injuries.
We are happy to report that Angus will be going to the country for a few
months of well-deserved rest and recuperation.
PASS IT ON!
