Horses on the loose in Griffintown

Two horses got a small taste of freedom in Griffintown.

A black horse and a white horse somehow escaped from their stables early this morning and went for a 10-minute stroll near the Lachine Canal.

They were caught quickly and taken back to their owner.

The horses, which pull carriages in Old Montreal, are usually stabled in Griffintown during the summer.
