The sinkhole was about three to four feet deep, according to the Cape Cod Times.

The hole appeared to have been the cesspool of an old septic system. A block wall could be seen on one side of the hole, the release stated.

Officials described the horse as being in an “agitated” state but still ‘stable’ and free of injury.

Pun count: 3.
