Bangor Police Officer Uses Lasso to Catch Horse

| April 30, 2014


BANGOR, Maine (AP) – A Bangor police officer with a makeshift lasso is credited with nabbing a race horse that escaped from its stall at the Hollywood Casino Racetrack. Officer Kris Beck told WMTW-TV that the call about a horse trotting around a city neighbor came in early Wednesday. Officer Jose Vidaurri made a lasso out a piece of rope from his cruiser and placed it around the horse’s neck after officers cornered it in a driveway. The horse didn’t seem too disturbed by the events that transpired after escaping from its stall at Hollywood Casino Racetrack. The horse munched grass while waiting for Hollywood Casino racetrack workers to take it back to its stall.
