WARREN, R.I. (WPRI) – It was not a typical Memorial Day at 1776 Liquors in Warren.
The busy holiday brought in more than just customers, but a pony inside of the popular liquor store.
Surveillance video of the incident shows a customer lead the pony inside, and then let the animal defecate on the floor.
"The horse walks in and all of a sudden he starts doing his thing all over the floor. He seemed a little disengaged with what was going on around him, because he didn't have a clue his horse even did that. I was very puzzled," said the store's owner Rick Lima.
Shock and surprise by workers and customers quickly turned into a minor dispute with the animal's owner. Police arrived to the store a short time later and located the man outside.
The animal's owner returned to the store to clean up the mess.
