Owner of 3 stray horses located

UPDATE: 12/15/16 (12:45 p.m.) The owner of three stray horses has been located, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD Animal Care & Control Division.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD Animal Care & Control Division is trying to locate the owner of three stray horses.

Officers were called out to Waltonwood Providence Retirement Center off Providence Road around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. When officers arrived they found three loose horses.

The horses were contained. 

The location of the horses is near Union County so the sheriff's department helped try and contact the owners, but the attempts were unsuccessful.

The horses were loaded on a trailer and brought back to ACC.

ACC is asking that if you have any information about these horses or you know who owns them, please contact 311 and ask to be transferred to the Animal Care & Control Enforcement Supervisor line.  Please let 311 know you are calling in reference to the stray horses.

ACC says they're not providing photos so they can ensure whoever comes forward can provide ownership.
