    Local police, state Fish & Game, and a “good Samaritan with a trailer” helped round up three horses loose on Jefferson Boulevard in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Police received a call about the horses at 1:22 a.m. The animals were “running around on the street,” said Sgt. Lance Faille of the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department.

“West Sacramento Police Department responded. Fish & Game responded. A good Samaritan had a trailer that they used. They got the horses into the trailer until (Yolo County’s) Animal Control arrived, and Animal Control took them to Woodland,” said Faille.

The animals were later released to their owner, Marla Butler of Allan Avenue.

“It looks like a broken wooden fence is how they got out,” Faille said.
