A pair of loose horses were struck by a car in South Aldergrove on the evening of Jan. 1.
The Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) and the RCMP were called out to the 1600 block of 272nd Street that night, said LAPS director Sean Baker.
Baker said two horses had gotten loose and were injured in the incident. Local residents with halters and leads helped round up the animals and LAPS workers called in a veterinarian.
A canvas of nearby homes turned up the horses’ owners, and both were taken to a vet.
Baker said it didn’t appear that the horses were fatally injured, but due to privacy concerns the veterinarian was not releasing information about the horses’ condition.
The driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene and spoke to the RCMP after the incident.
