New ‘student’ stirs up excitement at school


TUSCOLA, Ill. (WCIA) — Districts get new students all the time, but one Douglas County school had to saddle up for their newest addition…which came as a bit of a surprise.

A horse decided to trot on over to East Prairie School in Tuscola early Tuesday morning. Officials with the school district said the horse made it home and is now safe with his owner.
