As the police department started to receive calls about the loose horses, North Ridgeville Police Officer John Metzo and Brand Kjaer responded to the neighborhood. While using a small rope and two dog leashes, the officers were able to take control of the horses.

"Rest easy citizens," the department wrote on Facebook. "The wild horses are no longer terrorizing Ridgefield."

Later in the day, the police officers located the owner and returned the horses to them. 

Surprisingly enough, this isn't the first time the North Ridgeville Police Department has responded to a call like this: In 2015, Officer Metzo and two others responded to a Kangaroo in the middle of the road. A few years later, in 2018, the North Ridgeville Police Department responded to a pig that was on the loose.
