Horse Rescued From Canal: Miami-Dade Fire Rescue

Miami-Dade Fire crews were working to rescue a horse stuck in a canal in Southwest Dade.

The incident occurred at a canal near southwest 167th avenue and southwest 195th street Sunday afternoon.

According to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, the horse went into a canal after being frightened by chickens, as the owner and walked passed a neighboring farm. 

The canal was too deep for the horse to climb out of it on its own, so the owner called fire rescue for assistance.

Rescue crews braced the horse, and rescuers got in the water and assisted the horse out of the steep embankment.

The horse was checked out and released to the owner.
