Rescue workers saved a horse from freezing water after it fell through the ice on a Minnesota creek on Sunday.
The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office says it happened around 3 p.m. at Elm Creek Park Reserve in Maple Grove.
The owner was riding the horse through the park, but when he got off Likira (horse's name) it ran off and eventually went through the ice over the creek.
Members of Three Rivers Park Police, Dayton Police, Dayton Fire and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office worked together to put a harness around the horse and then used eight rescue workers to pull it out of the water, which appears to be about waste deep in the photos.
Likira was uninjured and left the park with its owner.
In a related story, a dog fell through the ice in Bloomington last week, and in that case, the fire department came out to rescue it after witnesses called saying the owner was about to try and save the dog themselves, which Bloomington Fire explained was a very bad idea.
The Star Tribune reports that dogs were also rescued after falling through thin ice in Eden Prairie and Lino Lakes.
