Watercooler Talk

WORLAND (AP) — A northwestern Wyoming man received a citation for letting his horse wander in Worland, but not before he complained to town law enforcement officials about the absence of a hitching post in front of the local saloon. William Schellinger was cited by Washakie County law enforcement officers for allowing his horse to run at large in this city along the Big Horn River.

Schellinger was apparently in a bar early Sunday when his horse wandered away, prompting police to follow it to make sure it didn’t cause an accident with a car.

After being confronted by officers, Schellinger contended the city didn’t have any hitching posts and told them they should spend their time arresting real criminals, not bothering cowboys with wayward horses.
