LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – The Lexington police horse that injured its leg after falling into a manhole is back to work after several weeks off.

Yoder got his leg stuck in an uncovered utility hole in downtown Lexington during the Christmas parade.

Firefighters and veterinarians worked for nearly two hours to rescue the animal, while a crowd gathered to watch. He was transported to Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital.

Lexington police announced Tuesday that the horse was back on patrol.
