The animals wandered across Balma Street …
This is the core story of the Easter weekend and the gendarmes of the Haute-Garonne could not resist to share it on Facebook. An unusual scene took place on Sunday inthe road of Balma street, on the eastern edge of Toulouse .
Residents and motorists found themselves face to face, on a fairly busy road, with a pair of unusual intruders, rather unexpected; two ponies actually.
A chase of 500 metres
Alerted, the Gendarmerie brigade in Balma immediately went to intercept the two poneys. The gendarmes took a little time to get hold of them with a 500 metre chase, eventually managing to gain control of them and return them to their owners. An investigation of the site that they were placed at, revealed a small hole that they had managed to make their escape through.
