BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police say a horse was found wandering on Interstate 91 after kicking out the door of its trailer and falling onto the highway.

Troopers responded and alerted the animal’s owners who had continued on their way. Police say the horse had a few cuts and scrapes but appeared to avoid more serious injury.

The horse was found around 1 a.m. Thursday after drivers reported seeing it in the Cromwell area.

The owners were about 40 miles away in Stratford when they were notified by police. They retrieved the horse.
