Horses escape from Golden Gate Park corral

Nearly two dozen horses that are rented out for riding escaped from their enclosure at Golden Gate Park early Wednesday morning.

A wrangler discovered at about 5 a.m. that 23 horses had broken free of their corral at the Bercut Equitation Field, according to the Recreation and Park Department.

The wrangler immediately began to gather the horses back to Bercut Field, and the horses were contained by 7 a.m.

No horses were injured, and it wasn’t immediately known how the horses escaped.
