Escaped 'Unicorn' leads police on wild, hot-to-trot chase

- We can now say - unequivocally – that unicorns do exist...

Just ask the California Highway Patrol up in Madera County because they had to chase one down this week.

That's a CHP officer in the video holding the unicorn after the hot-to-trot pursuit Wednesday night.

The unicorn darted in and out of traffic for several hours, surprising numerous drivers who weren't sure what to call the not-so-mythical beast when they dialed 911.

The pink-bridled-pony, as it turns out, was all dressed up for a children's birthday party from which the high-spirited mini-horse escaped “twice.”
