A horse walks into a hotel… erm, this one isn’t a joke!

The lobby of the Best Western Hotel in Birmingham had an unexpected visitor last Tuesday morning – a horse!

The horse had runaway from it’s owners and in a panic managed to end up in the Best Western Hotel at 9.45am on Tuesday morning.

“It did a lot of damage to the lobby. It made some dents in the wall and knocked over plants but the staff were worried about the horse.” said Best Western sales manager Heather Thornton.

West Midlands Police said that offices had now brought the horse under control and that it had been returned to it’s owners. However it later emerged that the horse had to be put down.

The sad tale was witnessed by several scared people in the hotel – and the horse became very frightened – “Clearly scared it was trying to find its way back out” said a Best Western spokesman.
