Two horses ran loose for about 20 minutes Monday morning on a Contra Costa County freeway. Troopers tried to corral them on side streets. They dodged the officers and made a dash onto the interstate, running in the opposite direction of traffic.
Twitter user Slimjanders captured the rare sighting on video and tweeted, "Almost hit a flock of wild horses on my commute to work today."
The Contra Costa Highway Patrol Facebook page shared a photo of the horses starting their caption off with a joke:
"Two horses walk out of a stable. One says to the other, 'Which way is the freeway?'"

Officers were able to catch the horses and returned them safely to their owners.
