PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police have corralled a horse that got loose and blocked traffic at an intersection in the city's Fishtown neighborhood.

Police believe the animal got loose from the city's Fairmount Park stables. Officials there didn't immediately return a call for comment.

Police found the horse at Girard Avenue and Richmond Street about 7:15 a.m. Friday.

Officers used carrots to attract and calm down the horse, so they could put him in a trailer.
