ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a horse that became stuck after falling on a walkway over the Rio Grande has died from its injuries.
Police spokesman Daren DeAguero says the horse’s leg got caught in a storm drain Saturday afternoon while crossing the river on Montano Road.
The horse’s owner called a veterinarian but the animal had suffered severe injuries and died.
DeAguero says authorities had to close the road to remove the horse’s remains.
There were also repairs made on the storm drain.
