Traffic was not impacted, but a passerby captured video of the horse on the move.

Massachusetts State Police troopers joined MSPCA Angell and Taunton Police and were able to get the horse under control using a leash supplied by a K-9 officer.

The horse’s owner arrived a short time later and transported the horse back home.
