ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A man looking to save an injured colt showed up at the CBS Atlanta News parking lot for help Tuesday night.

Brannue Fulton, who trains wild horses, said he was called to pick up the colt by a man could no longer care for it.

The trainer believes the horse tried to run with another horse but got caught on a barbed wire fence.

"When the horse is in a panic, especially a colt, he's trying to get with the heard. It [the fence pole] just went in. And he was stuck for a little bit," said Fulton.

Fulton said the colt eventually freed itself, and he was able to get it into a halter to lead it into the trailer.

CBS Atlanta News was able to connect Fulton with Save The Horses Foundation.

The organization found a vet and agreed to foot the bill for the initial care.

The vet did not want to be identified, but said that he cleaned the wound, and the horse will be OK.
