On her morning bike commute today, reader Kathleen King was passed by a horse on Wells Street, presumably on the loose from Noble Horse Theatre. Horses escaped from the theater's stable exactly one year ago, too.

King says the horse was "heading north on Wells, before turning right on North Ave. I hope all (including horse) are safe."

UPDATE: The Sun-Times' George Siefo fills in more of the story.
