RCMP say a runaway horse found on the QEII Highway north of Calgary on Monday has been returned to its owner.
The horse was spotted galloping down the middle of northbound Highway 2 at around 4 a.m.
Officers were able to herd the wayward animal off the road with the help of some truck drivers.
One of the drivers made an improvised harness from a tow strap; the horse was then transported to Airdrie in a horse trailer from Airdrie Towing & Recovery Inc.
RCMP were able to determine who owns the horse and return the animal.
The city of Airdrie is located approximately 15 kilometres north of Calgary.
