Horses run wild in CA suburb

It was a different kind of rush hour as a herd of horses galloped wildly through a Southern California town for up to two hours before they were lassoed. Ranch hand Abel Canales at the OK Corral in Otay Mesa says wild horses up from neighboring Mexico apparently coaxed about a dozen horses and colts out of their stalls Wednesday afternoon. Police and Border Patrol trucks and news helicopters followed as they loped down suburban streets in the Eastlake area of Chula Vista and through the local Olympic Training Center.

Two horses finally stopped and were roped and led back to the ranch. Canales says he eventually lassoed the lead horse and managed to guide the tired herd back.

The San Diego Humane Society says two animals had minor leg injuries.
