CLINTON — Saturday, May 14: Black horse escapes owner, runs down Chace Street
At 10:37 p.m. on Saturday, May 14, Rita Kittredge, 54, of Chace Street, called police to inform them of a black horse running toward Terrance Street.
Police called animal control, which was already aware of the situation and quickly tracked down the owner. The owner told animal control that the horse’s name is “Moose,” and although he is “typically friendly, he’s never been out before.”
By 11:09 p.m., Moose was still on the loose and heading toward Lancaster. Police cruisers from Lancaster, Bolton and Clinton waited at the town line to apprehend moose, who trotted his way to Bolton Road, where he was caught and promptly returned to his owner. Police escorted the owner back to Clinton, because he needed to walk moose home.
