The Clarksburg police said the horse found grazing in a cemetery on Chestnut Street on June 1 belongs to a farm in Stonewood.

Original story

The Clarksburg Police Department got called out Saturday to a "Horse on the Run."

The horse made his way around Clarksburg until he found himself in the former Odd Fellows Cemetery off of Chestnut Street, police said.

Officers and nearby residents tried to lasso the horse in.

"I think they need to keep it over towards the center and they were suppose to bring a mare to tempt it out, and they've had someone come down and try to lasso it, but it would just run away," said Maggie Jedju, Clarksburg resident.

According to police, the horse is no longer running loose.
