As if in total freedom, roaming on green meadows, a mare was rescued by local police Wednesday June 22 in the southwest area of Merida’s Periférico, while it was trotting around nearby vehicles travelling at high-speed.
Although the animal seemed tame, police agents had a hard time trying to seize her in order to protect her from being run down by a car.
The equine was finally rescued by the Merida Police Animal Protection Unit, before it could cause an accident in the busy area.
Animal Associations reported the case on Wednesday afternoon, posting photographs of the horse on social networks. Until a citizen called the authorities and stated that the horse was loose and wandering at the edge of the Periférico, near the entrance to Sululá.
The Animal Protection Unit arrived onsite and began asking residents around the area if someone had a horse missing, but got no response.
Volunteers from “Animal Evolution AC” helped the authorities to close the perimeter with ropes and their own vehicles, but the mare had a vast extension of land to run, so it took them five hours to seize it.
At some point, agents of the Public Security Secretariat (SSP) had to partially close two lanes of the Periférico to reduce the risk of an accident.
Finally, the mare was taken to the Municipal Animal Control Center, where it was placed in custody and care while the owner is located.
