WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Wichita authorities have rescued a 1,100-pound horse that partially fell through abandoned railroad tracks.

Wichita police, animal control and firefighters worked together to pull the horse from the hole on Sunday. It took responders more than two hours to free the animal.

Authorities constructed a pulley system and about six firefighters hoisted the horse out of the hole. They didn’t say how the animal fell or who owns it.

Witnesses say the horse didn’t appear to be severely injured in the fall. They say it suffered a few cuts on its legs.
