LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Five horses were found roaming loose near Midway Baptist Church in Ohlo Monday night.

The five were found near Midway Baptist Church in Ohlo near Hwy. 98 West. Several volunteers assisted the Lamar County Sheriff's Department in rounding up the horses. They were taken to a temporary holding facility at the Purvis Multi Purpose Center.

Those involved in the round-up say the horses appear to have never been handled.

Anyone who thinks they may know owns the horse can leave a message at the Trails End Horse Haven facebook page or call 601-297-7067.
