Cops corral crazy critters

It was a wild weekend for police in the Central Okanagan. Literally.

Just before 4 a.m. Saturday, RCMP responded to a call from a concerned citizen about horses running down Highway 97, causing a traffic hazard near the UBC Okanagan overpass. 

Police tried to corral the six horses, which appeared spooked and were causing huge traffic backups. Witnesses said they were using their police cruisers to try and herd the horses.

Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says it took nearly an hour and a half, four officers and an off-duty RCMP dispatcher to finally herd all six horses into a nearby fenced in area. 

Later that day, about 1:30 p.m., a Lake Country officer was called upon to assist the highway patrol in cornering three peacocks that had reportedly escaped a local farm.

The two officers located the birds staring at their mirrored reflection in the glass of a commercial building just a block away. 

The peacocks were safely herded back to their farm, where they flew back over their fence.
