GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say they’re trying to track down the owner of a horse found injured near a Florida highway.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the male horse was found early Friday morning along Interstate 75 just south of Gainesville. Officials believe he either fell out of a trailer or was hit by a vehicle.

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office says the horse, nicknamed “Teddy Bear Highway,” has been taken to a veterinarian for knee surgery. The horse is being cared for by the staff of Springhill Equine Veterinary Clinic and The Equine Medical Center of Ocala.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for the animal’s care.
