Horse rescued from owner’s backyard pool in California

Animal rescuers responded to a California home to help a horse that ended up stranded in its owner’s empty backyard pool.

The San Diego Humane Society said in a Facebook post that the horse’s owner summoned help to their Jamul home when they were unable to help the horse, named Shocker, climb out of the empty pool.

The humane society’s emergency response team responded to the home alongside the Department of Animal Services and set up a rescue tripod to lift the horse.
