Man Tries To Board Train With Pony

It's practically something out of a western movie: A man in Wales tried to board a train with a pony.

The man, traveling from Wrexham to Holyhead in Wales, approached a clerk at the station and asked for two tickets on the 7:02 train after he was refused entry on the train by a rail worker, Australia's Daily Telegraph reports.

The clerk would not sell him tickets, but he tried to get on the train regardless. He got into an argument with a rail worker, saying "I know the law" when told he was could not bring a horse on the train.

An Arriva Train Wales spokesperson told the BBC: "Arriva Trains Wales allows dogs and small animals to travel on-board trains. All animals, except dogs, must be conveyed within a fully enclosed basket or pet carrier with dimensions not exceeding 85 x 60 x 60cm."

So a pony doesn't fit the bill, you say?

Undeterred, the man was told he could not ride the train...so he took the pony in the station's elevator, perhaps for a small glimpse of a ride.
