(CBS) — Bad horse, bad horse — whatcha gonna do?

Police in far north suburban Wauconda had a situation on their hands when a runaway horse galloped across the community.

Dashcam video posted by the police department Tuesday shows an officer in pursuit as the animal goes through the village. At one point, a dog from a neighborhood home nearly gets involved in the chase, but then backs off.

In a separate posting on Facebook, police thank two individuals, Nick Willis and Alix Keelan, who ultimately wrangled and stopped the free-spirited animal.
