MULDROW, Okla. — A rescue call for a horse in need had Muldrow police thinking outside the box on how to save the gentle giant.

The horse was found around 10 a.m. Thursday morning by a local mail carrier.

The horse was wrapped up in barbed wire and lying in a ditch in Muldrow, which is west of Fort Smith.

When the call came in everyone at the police department went to the scene to see if they could help.

When police arrived, the brown and white 16-year-old horse named Mars M.C. was lying on its side in a muddy, watery ditch.

With some creativity rescuers were able to free the horse and get it back home to a warm barn.
