I’m not sure how I’d react if I saw a UNICORN running down the street. I’d probably wonder if someone slipped me some acid . . . then try to capture the unicorn, kill it, and drink its silver blood to achieve immortality. Sorry. Too dark?
Anyway, a unicorn ACTUALLY got loose in Madera, California on Wednesday night. Technically it was a white pony with a HORN strapped to its head, and it escaped from a kid’s birthday party.
But when it broke away and started running around town, no one knew that back story. They just saw a unicorn. So naturally the cops started getting confused calls about a unicorn on the loose. It even made it onto the highway.
So eventually the California Highway Patrol got involved, and used a HELICOPTER to track it down. And it STILL took them three-and-a-half HOURS to catch it.
Which sounds like a lot, but that would be NOTHING if they were trying to catch a leprechaun. Leprechauns are way more wily than unicorns. Everyone knows that.
A woman named Sandra Boos owns the pony. The cops didn’t give her a citation, but told her they would if the unicorn got free again.
