Alaska police officers wrangle miniature horses who escaped from Anchorage corral

Police officers in Alaska's biggest city became wranglers early Friday morning, rounding up a couple of miniature horses that escaped from their corral.

A photo tweeted from the Anchorage police department showed three officers with the two horses they apprehended. The tweet read: "Some interesting runaways patrol came across this morning!"

The two little horses, one black and one tan, were found grazing in the median of a busy East Anchorage street about 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro tells Anchorage television station KTUU ( ) that officers "were able to take these horses into custody."

The horses were reunited with their owners after escaping from their corral and wandering a few blocks.

Castro says: "You can call it our runaway juveniles for the day."
