A Unicorn Got Loose in California and the Cops Took Four Hours to Catch It

unicornI’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.
