A first in perhaps many, many decades!
During our 2nd shift briefing today (Friday, June 21), a caller reported three unaccompanied horses cantering west on Main Street.
The WPD dispatcher sent WPD personnel to remedy the situation. Community Service Officer Beecroft, Officer Borchardt, Detective Schleis, Lieutenant Gempler and Chief Raap responded.
With incredible assistance from our community, horse owners from the Whitewater area and the UW-W P.D., these beautiful animals were safely returned to their home.
There were no injuries to man nor beast. Also, no property damage occurred during this nearly one hour of teamwork!
