Police in California received a surprising call for help from some confused drivers who spotted an escaped ‘unicorn’ on the road.
The ‘unicorn’ was actually a pony named Juliet who is dressed up by her owner to attend children’s parties.
The spooked animal dodged busy traffic while being chased by police after escaping with her unicorn horn still attached to her halter.
Juliet led police and local residents on a 3 hour chase which also involved a helicopter to help track the animal.
It seems Juliet had been on the hunt for a friend and finally stopped when she found another horse to hang out with.
Police safely caught the pony and returned her to her owner.
