Dothan: This morning members of the Dothan Fire Department responded to a service call to help with rescuing a horse. The horse was being transported in a trailer when the horse somehow knocked a hole in the trailer. The driver did not know the horse had don this and the horses foot and leg was dragged on the highway. When the driver realized there was a problem he pulled over near the Chevron at Montgomery Hwy and the Circle.
A vet was called to look at the horse and it was determine the horse needed to be put down. The horses foot and leg was still pinned and had to be removed from the trailer. We understand this was one of four horsed in the trailer. A wreck from Ferguson’s Wrecker Service responded to lift the horse out of the trailer. The horse was being carried to be buried.
