Imagine coming home and finding a horse in your basement. This was the reality for an Inver Grove Heights, a Minnesota woman who desperately called the police when she discovered in February 2019 that a horse had broken into her house. Did he steal something or just wanted protection? This was a night nobody will ever forget.
The stable ditch
The horse must have thought, "Enough with the stable!" Instead, he denied it for a house. The horse managed to break through a closed door to the cellar and stayed there. He could not climb the stairs to the rest of the house, which was comforting to the owner. But she was still scared and called for help.
She called the police and they arrived soon to remove the horse. Everything went back to normal, but Inver Grove Heights police officer Adam Wiederhoeft said it was unclear how the horse got into the house at all.
Faced with many unknowns
The case has many unknowns. For example, how did the horse open the door hooves are difficult to open. Did he open it? Why did he decide to enter the house? Unfortunately, horses can not speak if they are not Mr. Ed, So it will always be a mystery.
Fortunately, the horse could not climb the stairs from the basement, or who knows what would have happened to the woman's house. The light-colored horse remained calm during the situation and seemed to frighten only the others.
Many burglars are "caught red-handed," but this horse was caught red-legged. Maybe he did not want to break into the house, but the Inver Grove Heights police department shared a video of the horse in the basement. The video has since gone viral Social media,
Never a boring moment in IGH!

You never know what you might encounter in your home. If you hear someone (or something) "neighbors", it's best to call the police. You could have an unwelcome houseguest.
