A pony reported missing Thursday morning has been found and captured by Richland Hills Police Department, according to police officials.
At about 7:20 a.m. Thursday, Richland Hills Police responded to a report of stray cattle at the intersection of the 6300 block of Baker Boulevard and the 6300 block of 26 Boulevard near Richland Hills.
Several 911 calls have been received regarding a “small horse in the neighborhood,” police said.
Richland Hills police arrived and found a pony. They determined that the pony came from a residence in Richland Hills.
“We called the professional cowboys for help,” the Richland Hills Police Department said in a Facebook post. “Some jobs require a cowboy on a horse with a rope.”
The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Livestock Unit was contacted for assistance in capturing the pony.
The pony has been safely taken into custody and the owner of the pony has been notified, police said.
“Shout out and thanks to our partners at the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office for saddling up and wrangling this little guy for us,” the Richland Hills Police Department said in the Facebook post. “Pony is safe.”
This incident is still under investigation with regard to the circumstances surrounding the pony’s detachment.
