State police say they used a stun gun and lasso to catch an unbridled horse that was running loose on a Pennsylvania highway.

State police say the horse was spotted near the California, Pa., exit of the Mon-Fayette Expressway about 7:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say the horse would run away when they approached, so they used the stun gun and lasso to subdue and control the animal.

Police say they can't find the owner. They say the animal wasn't saddled and had no identifying brandings or other marks.

The horse was taken by Washington County Animal Control.

A veterinarian was called in to tend to the horse.

California is about 25 miles south of Pittsburgh.
