GROVETOWN, Ga. (AP) — Animal services workers in east Georgia are investigating how a group of eight horses escaped a pasture before trotting alongside Interstate 20.

Columbia County Animal Services operations manager Daniel Mayne tells the Augusta Chronicle ( ) the horses trotted along the shoulder of the interstate for about half an hour after escaping from a pasture on Monday afternoon.

Mayne says the horses never caused any traffic hazards. Authorities say the horses escaped from a property between Harlem and Grovetown.

The newspaper reports that the horses were rounded up and put into trailers by animal services officials and state Department of Transportation workers.
