Ionia County Sheriff’s Office takes reins in horse rescue operation
Community galloped into action to save stuck horse.
IONIA, Mich. (WILX) - The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office was called to rescue a horse named Baby after it became stuck in a hole Wednesday.
Ionia County sheriff’s deputies, saddled with responsibility, wasted no time and hoofed it into the field to rescue the 14-year-old horse.
With the assistance of Orleans Township fire crews, Cindy Cotter of General Rental and Ruehs Towing, Baby was freed from the hole with only a few bumps.
The undersheriff’s cruiser, however, was left with a strong odor of horse manure following the rescue.
Baby remains in stable condition. Authorities do not suspect foal play.
