Horses corralled after brief dash along I-10

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Things got interesting along I-10 in Jackson County on Monday morning. Two horses got loose and made a mad dash alongside the interstate, being chased by sheriff's deputies and police.

The gate to the property where the horses are kept was left unlocked so firefighters could have access to fight brush fires, but it blew open in the wind and the horses made their escape.

After a little coaxing and a makeshift road block, the horses were corralled back onto the property and the gates were secured.

Neither the animals or any drivers were hurt during the brief flight to freedom.
