A Shetland pony pulled British police on an unusual car chase earlier this week.

Footage of the incident shows the animal moving through a residential area in Sussex, England, with two police cars following it. It's not known where the animal came from.

In total, four police cars were sent out to attend to the escaped pony after it was seen on four different streets, The Telegraph reported.

Police told the website the animal was eventually cornered and taken to a nearby yard.

The RSPCA had been working to contact the pony's owner.
