An apparently drunk man decided to take a little horse on a night time stroll to a chip shop in Manchester.
GMP Wythenshawe said they received several calls last night about a man who appeared worse for wear and clutching a beer can wandering round Wythenshawe and Baguley with a horse, believed to be a Shetland pony.
It’s not known who he was, or where they had come from, but it seems the unusual pair had been putting in the miles and were also spotted in a car park in Northenden, as well as at Southmoor Industrial Estate, and even outside Wythenshawe Hospital where the horse stopped off to sample the plants. Officers posted on Facebook: “Last night we received several reports of a drunk male with a horse outside a chippy, the horse was safe and well by police.
“The male and horse were then spotted outside Wythenshawe Hospital (horse eating the plants), the horse was then spotted on a car park in Northenden ..... where is the horse now?”
GMP Wythenshawe added later: For all of you asking why we left the man with the horse, the officer attended and believed the man was fine, he wasn’t riding the horse at the time and was in full control of the horse.”
