Equine Emergency

In Animal News on November 13, 2008 at 7:20 pm

Early this week Richmond, Indiana faced a unique challenge; how do you get a horse out of a swimming pool? After wandering off it’s pasture, a local horse walked onto a swimming pool cover and inadvertently fell inside the pool. Struggling by itself, the horse could not escape. The property owners called 911 for help, which came in the form of deputies, a mounted patrol officer, and a veterinarian. After more than an hour, the crew finally got the horse free, saving its life. Reports say the horse is doing fine after being transported to a heated barn and given a shot to treat shock.
