Pony express for German circus escapee
A pony who escaped from a circus in Germany tried to board a tram in its getaway attempt, only to be prevented by the driver and other passengers, police said Tuesday.
The stallion was "waiting patiently" with other guests at a tram stop in Nordhausen, central Germany, "and wasn't bashful about trying to board when the doors opened," a police statement said.
"Other passengers and the tram driver took exception to this and held the animal back, however.
"It later became clear that the pony had just escaped from a circus that was in Nordhausen. Circus employees were already on their way to put an end to the pony's adventure."
Last month a man made headlines in Wrexham, Wales, when he was captured on a security camera boarding a train with a pony.
